Get Involved

Your opportunity to make a difference gives others an opportunity to shine.

Imagine not understanding your child’s teacher; being held back in a job because of your reading skills; or just struggling with everyday tasks. When you help someone improve their English language skills, imagine the impact you can have.

Become A Tutor

An hour or two a week is all it takes to make a difference. With one-to-one or small group tutoring, you can help English as a Second Language (ESL) or Basic Literacy students improve their reading comprehension, writing skills, and conversational English. It all starts with an LVSC Tutor Training workshop, and ongoing support from the LVSC team.

If tutoring isn’t for you, there are other ways to help us improve literacy in Somerset County. LVSC needs volunteers to help our small staff run our large organization. If you’re interested in administrative work, fundraising, event planning, or joining the Board of Trustees, we’d love to talk to you.
