Our mission is to actively promote literacy by identifying adult literacy needs in our community and meeting those needs through direct literacy services. We strive to help our clients acquire the literacy skills necessary to be successful in the workplace, participate in the education of their children and lead productive lives.
Based in the Bridgeport Public Library, Literacy Volunteers of Bridgeport recruits, trains and guides volunteers to teach other adults to read, write and speak English. Tutors and students work together for a minimum of two hours per week. Learning takes place in small groups or one-on-one.
Through a variety of tutoring and general literacy programs, we help students of ages 18 and older better integrate themselves into society and to improve their lives by furthering their learning.
