Literacy Volunteers of South Sarasota County

Vision and Mission


All residents of South Sarasota County can read, write and speak English at a level that enables them to function effectively as individuals, parents, employees, and citizens and achieve their personal, family and job-related goals.




 Our mission is to change the lives of adults with low literacy skills by providing tutoring, educational technology, and classes that effectively increase

their English reading, writing, and speaking

skills at no cost to the adult learners.
