Literacy Volunteers of Eastern Connecticut is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, volunteer-based organization.

Our mission is to assist English students and new Americans in learning to read, speak, and understand English so that they can thrive in America as residents, parents, employees, and business owners.
