LIFE CHANGED THROUGH LITERACY
A Member Organization of Proliteracy
Literacy Volunteers of Beaufort County is a non-profit, volunteer organization whose primary goal is to promote literacy in Beaufort County. The mission of the Literacy Volunteers of Beaufort County (LVBC) is to empower the citizens of Beaufort County by providing instruction in reading, writing, English, and mathematics and specialty areas (GED, CRC, citizenship test, ESL, helping children with homework, written portion of driver's license test, ASVAB, job applications, workplace skill development, computer skills, etc.). This is done through one-on-one or small group tutoring of adults 18 and older. This service is FREE and CONFIDENTIAL! Tutoring takes place in public areas such as Brown Library, BCCC Learning Resource Library, churches, and other public locations agreed upon between student and tutor. Online tutoring is available for a limited number of participants.
Along with the basic fundamentals of reading, writing, English and mathematics, we focus on other aspects of education that are often overlooked. We put an emphasis on evaluating each learner’s skill level in multiple areas, and a program of study is planned with the learner’s goals and interests.
Learners are then matched with tutors regarding interests, transportation, choice of tutoring site, and possible scheduling of sessions. The experience of the tutor and needs of the learner are given top priority.
Life is changed through literacy. About 43 million adults in the
U.S.—and almost 800 million worldwide—struggle with basic reading, writing and math skills.
These individuals struggle to read a menu, prescription bottles, fill out a job application, or read a bedtime story to their children. ProLiteracy removes the hurdles that stand in the way of their goals.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
