Volunteer Literacy/ English as a Second Language Program

Literacy is the foundation upon which all other learning occurs. Every day, we see the power of literacy to connect strangers, build confidence, and provide a path to a better life. 

The SVHEC's Volunteer Literacy Program provides free, confidential, one-on-one tutoring to build reading, writing, and math skills. The English as a Second Language (ESL) component gives non-native English speakers a safe place to practice their language skills, build vocabulary, and study for the U.S. citizenship exam.
