Improving our community by advancing essential literacy and citizenship skills for adults through education and advocacy.
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.
We meet our students where they are, embracing their efforts to achieve their goals.
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.
We appreciate the array of experiences and beliefs that comprise our learning community. Our learning is enriched by each individual's contribution.
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)
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.
