The Literacy Council of Northern Virginia is a non-profit educational organization that recruits and trains volunteers to tutor adults who need to develop basic reading, writing, and English speaking skills. Since 1962, the Literacy Council has trained thousands of volunteers to provide one-on-one tutoring to adults in our community.
