The mission of Literacy Volunteers Ontario - Yates, Inc. (LVOY) is to provide adults the literacy skills needed to reach their full potential as individuals, parents, workers, and citizens.
Why We're Successful...
We use highly qualified, committed volunteer tutors who are trained in student-centered learning. We provide tutoring that is specifically geared to each student's particular learning style. We set mutual goals that are realistic and attainable. We offer scheduling that is flexible and accommodating for both the student and tutor.
Many English-speaking adults come to us for help attaining their high school equivalency diploma or other milestones such as taking the written test for a permit in pursuit of a driver's license. Some individuals need assistance improving their vocabulary or reading comprehension. Other's need help with important math and science skills.
Foreign-speaking adults come to us to improve their fluency in English - reading, writing, and speaking it. Some seek our help in preparing for the U.S. Citizenship exam.
Achieving these types of goals allows learners to get better jobs, improve the living situation for their families, and contribute more to their community.
Thank you for helping us transform lives through literacy.
We focus on: Education, Community Benefit and Economic Development
