Who Does this Help?
Literacy affects every facet of adult life, including work, family, and health. Most jobs today require literacy skills at a level 4/ 6 or more (about a 7th grade level). However, according to the 2017 survey from the Program for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC), 60% of New Mexicans are at level 2 or below.
Mission: LVSF’s mission is to provide free tutoring to adults in reading, writing, and speaking English to strengthen our community, families, and the workforce. LVSF has been supporting literacy in our community since 1985. Since then, volunteer tutors have spent over 518,233 hours tutoring adults and supporting them to reach their goals and improve their lives.
