Tutors and students to be honored by Literacy Volunteers

Literacy Volunteers of America/Camden County will recognize the work of its volunteer tutors and the accomplishments of its registered students at its annual meeting, Saturday, May 30 from 10 a.m. to noon, at the M. Allan Vogelson Regional Branch Library of the Camden County Library System.

Literacy Volunteers of America/Camden County provides free one-on-one and small group tutoring in reading, math and English for Speakers of Other Languages to Camden County adults at the lowest levels of literacy. Unfortunately, many Camden County residents lack functional English literacy skills and this impedes their ability to acquire productive employment, assist their children in schoolwork and become active community members. Literacy Volunteers of America/Camden County addresses this problem by training volunteer tutors to instruct these adults using a flexible, learner-centered approach. This year LVA/CC has over 150 volunteer tutors working with 180 registered students.
