Transform lives in your community.
Volunteers are the backbone of LVCC. When you sign up to tutor or volunteer in our bookstore, you become a champion of people in need. Our volunteers do more than just teach adults to read – they develop invaluable life skills that can help students get an education, find employment, and become more active in the community.
You don’t need any special skills to start tutoring. All you need is a heart to help – we’ll teach you the rest. Like any other art, tutoring is learned by doing; the more you practice, the more confident you’ll become!
Tutor training is offered continually and all materials are supplied. All it takes to succeed is commitment, dedication, communication, and consistency. Come change a life at LVCC and see how it changes yours!
