Welcome to the website of Literacy Volunteers of Greater Sanford! Our mission is supporting the literacy needs of adults age 18 and above, especially those reading below the ninth-grade level, with free, confidential one-on-one tutoring by trained adult volunteers. Our approach is student-centered so that literacy goals match life goals related to the family, employment and citizenship.

Whether your goal is to gain better skills for a job, help a child with homework, read the label on a prescription bottle, or become a volunteer, we hope you will contact us.
