Program Overview

Literacy Volunteers of Randolph County was founded in 1984 to promote and foster literacy in Randolph County, WV through volunteer teaching programs to individuals who wish to improve literacy. The organization has steadily and consistently provided tutoring in basic reading and writing skills to the under-educated adults of Randolph County. In addition, it has often served students from the adjoining counties when the programs in those counties were unable to provide services. Recently, the organization has added English as a Second Language classes to its services to help the increasing number of non-native English speakers to our locale.

Over 30 years, we have offered free and one-on-one tutoring service for adult students to improve their basic reading.
An adult student studies with his or her tutor on individualized lessons reflecting his or her own life challenges such as how to write a check. We provide free training workshops for volunteer tutors who work with adult students for free. We have also expanded our service to include English as a Second Language (ESL) tutoring service for non-native speakers. In the last three years, we have had an increased demand for Conversational English classes. We offer two levels of classes, a beginning and low intermediate class and an advanced class with an emphasis on conversation and pronunciation. Also, we are expanding our partnerships with other community organizations to help adult students with literacy and computer skills.
