Literacy Volunteers

Holly Christo, Executive Director of Literacy Volunteers of South Central Massachusetts (LVSCM) spoke at our meeting Monday night.  LVSCM started in the Southbridge area in 1975 providing free tutoring to adults in basic literacy.  The program, located in the Jacob Edwards Library in Southbridge, has greatly expanded over the years serving several surrounding towns.  One-on-one tutoring as well as group classes help students learn to speak, read, and write English.  The number of students, with the roughly 30 countries they represent, has made getting enough tutors a high priority.  Fifty students are currently on the waiting list for one-on-one tutoring.  Visit their website at www.lvscm.org to see how you can help.
