Program Overview

Literacy Connections is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization founded in 1975 as Literacy Volunteers of America-Dutchess County, Inc. We later changed our name to Literacy Connections of the Hudson Valley, Inc. We serve adult students with the lowest literacy levels and immigrants lacking English language skills in Dutchess, Columbia, Greene and Orange Counties. Recognizing that illiteracy or low literacy is a family issue, our Adult and Family Literacy program also offers reading enrichment to children through our Book Buddies program, which brings volunteers to read to children in schools, so that they will have a positive experience with books.

Mission Statement

Literacy Connections is dedicated to developing and offering programs and services to support a literate society. We recruit and train volunteers to provide no-cost student-centered tutoring primarily for adults, and we offer programs and services for children and families that promote independence and enrichment through literacy.

Hours of operation: 9 AM - 4 PM Monday-Friday
