Literacy Volunteers at Family Centers believes that access to education is critical to becoming economically self-sufficient and independent.
Our adult students acquire the literacy skills and knowledge necessary to achieve personal and occupational goals. With the help of our dedicated volunteer tutors, Literacy Volunteers at Family Centers offers FREE English language instruction, digital literacy skillbuilding, work readiness programs, access to career training, and basic literacy programs for adults and families.
Proficiency in reading, writing and communication is essential for further advancement, both personally and professionally. We offer a full range of hybrid classes (online and in-person) from beginner to advanced levels. A Smartphone or computer device will be necessary to successfully attend class.
Through our partnerships with other community organizations, we are able to provide small group lessons to all ESL residents of lower Fairfield County with our emphasis on the Greenwich and Stamford communities.
