The board of directors understands that the coronavirus is increasingly becoming a risk to our community.  We are monitoring this situation and will keep you informed of how the pandemic affects the activities of LVG. 
 
  • The Daffodil Festival has been cancelled for this year.  We hope you will be able to participate in this event with us next year.  That being said, the Dining and Daffodils dinner has been cancelled.
  • Tutors and volunteers are encouraged to use CDC recommendations of washing hands frequently, wiping down surfaces, and staying at home if you are not feeling well.  Tutors should discuss this with their learners and encourage them to cancel the session if they are not feeling well.  If a tutor has a concern about meeting with their learner(s), please err on the cautious side and reschedule the tutoring. 
The safety of our volunteers, tutors, and learners are of utmost importance to us.  We will continue to inform you of how this pandemic impacts the work of LVG.  
 
Thank you for your dedication to the ongoing work of Equipping Adults for Tomorrow


About Us

 
  • We are a non-profit organization with the goal of increasing the literacy rate in Gloucester, Virginia and the surrounding area. 
 
  • We provide free one-on-one tutoring in reading, writing, math and other subjects to adult learners from all walks of life. Some are preparing for their GED test. Others are learning English as a new language, receiving tutoring near the end of a prison sentence, or simply trying to improve their basic academic skills. Whatever the need, the compassionate tutors and volunteers of LVG are here to help adult learners and to advocate for them.
 
  • The benefits of a higher literacy rate include: improved individual quality of life, improved literacy of the family (especially children), reduced poverty, higher employment rates and job retention, and overall community wellness.
 
  • We embrace the concept of lifelong learning and believe it's never too late to achieve personal success.
