Literacy Volunteers of Massachusetts
Literacy Volunteers of Massachusetts (LVM) trains volunteers who provide free, confidential and individualized tutoring to adults in basic literacy and English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL). LVM is Massachusetts’ leading provider of literacy tutoring for adults and has a network of 12 programs throughout the state. Each local LVM program sponsors additional services and activities based on the needs of the local community.
Volunteers attend a 2-hour orientation and an 18-hour training before being matched to tutor for 2 hours per week for 9 to 12 months. LVM’s professional staff provides ongoing support and sponsors activities to help both the student and tutor succeed and achieve the student’s goals.
