Volunteers needed to help Valley Shore Residents with English Language Skills

Literacy Volunteers Valley Shore’s (LVVS) mission is to teach residents of the Shoreline area to read, write and speak English to better their work and life skills for themselves, their families, their employers and their community. LVVS is now accepting applications for individuals to become volunteer English tutors and to attend our Fall 2020 New Tutor Training Workshop. The workshop is a 12-hour program conducted over eight facilitated sessions. Due to COVID-19 and the need for social distancing, LVVS will be conducting its Fall training workshop virtually through video calls. The video calls will include a review of prepared materials presented by a Workshop Leader as well as group discussions and exercises. The next training workshop begins September 17th and runs through October 29th. Potential tutors choose either the AM sessions from 9:30-11:00AM or the evening sessions from 7-8:30PM. We ask for a $35 donation to help offset the cost of materials. We have an online web-based training option available at any time for those unable to attend this facilitated workshop but would still like to be trained as an LVVS tutor. If you are interested in becoming a tutor, you can obtain an application on our website If you would like more information about the program please contact the Literacy Volunteers office at (860) 399-0280 or by e-mail at
