LITERACY

DONATE NOW

Fostering partnerships with adult learners, tutors, and communities that enable individuals and families
to achieve educational, career, and quality of life goals.

We believe that every adult should have the opportunity to learn how to read, write and speak English.
With your support, every dollar raised enables Literacy Volunteers of Greater New Haven to provide free classes to all adults who want to learn English or improve their literacy skills in Greater New Haven, Meriden, Wallingford and the Valley.
