Our Mission

Improving our community by advancing essential literacy and citizenship skills for adults through education and advocacy.

Our Values

RESPECT

We hold our students and volunteers in high esteem for their unique qualities and abilities.  We celebrate their contributions and achievements and regard each individual with dignity.

 

COMPASSION

We meet our students where they are, embracing their efforts to achieve their goals.

 

KNOWLEDGE

Our students become empowered as they gain new knowledge; therefore we strive to implement a learner-focused approach and to apply best practices in teaching.

 

DIVERSITY

We appreciate the array of experiences and beliefs that comprise our learning community.  Our learning is enriched by each individual's contribution.

 

COLLABORATION

Recognizing that no individual can end adult illiteracy alone, we create partnerships with those whose mission is in harmony with our own.

What We Do

We provide one-on-one and small group tutoring for adults in the following areas:

  • Basic reading, writing, and numeracy skills

  • English Language Learners (ELL)

  • Computer skills

  • Financial literacy

  • Workplace literacy

  • Citizenship preparation

We also offer low cost, family-based immigration legal services.  LVWA is officially recognized by the Department of Justice and the Board of Immigrant Appeals.  This recognition allows non-profit agencies to practice immigration law.

 

A dedicated team of qualified volunteer tutors assists adults in building their literacy skills to be better prepared for today's job market, to get a promotion, and to be more engaged in the community.  We provide services to residents of the City of Winchester, Frederick County, and Clarke County.
