In Chautauqua County, about one in five adults are functionally illiterate

In 35% of Chautauqua County homes, a language other than English is the spoken language


  • Not being able to talk to your child's doctor or teacher

  • Not being able to fill out a job application or write a resume

  • Not being able to read medical instructions, labels, warning signs, or ballots

  • Not being able to read a letter from a friend or a recipe

  • Not being able to read a night time stories to your children

Many people who are unable to read or write, can't afford private literacy classes. At Literacy Volunteers of Chautauqua, we offer free tutoring to teach adults how to read and write.  With your support, we can reach more people.   


Please support us in our mission to transform these lives.
