Literacy is Life!


Challenges arise in every life, but opportunities also abound.

Literacy Volunteers of Greater New Haven (LV) helps adults overcome obstacles and achieve their goals with the transformative power of reading, writing and speaking English. Our dedicated staff and volunteer tutors offer free classes in these critical skills throughout the New Haven region, Meriden, Wallingford and the Naugatuck Valley.  

Support a FUTURE where everyone's VOICE is heard

LVAGNH, Citizenship, Literacy

Literacy Volunteers of Greater New Haven has a decades-long legacy of supporting adults who want to improve their lives by learning literacy skills.

LV’s work is more critical now than ever in the midst of a public health emergency triggered by the coronavirus pandemic. As a result, in-person tutoring was suspended in March, but learning remotely has continued without pause. To ensure online classes become more widely available, LV’s priority is to provide a laptop to any student who needs one.

A gift is an investment with life-changing returns — and is deeply appreciated.

The power of literacy enables all of us to thrive!


Literacy Volunteers of Greater New Haven stands with the Black Lives Matter movement to redress long overdue issues of social injustice and racial inequality and to promote a society that is fair and open to all. 

Our mission to transform lives through the power of literacy is fundamentally based on removing barriers to education for any adult who seeks help. That goal, we believe, requires continued advocacy against systemic racism and economic privilege which, for too long, have denied the rights - and dreams - of people of color.
