Serving adult learners in Pitt County, LV-PC provides many different opportunities to learn, from computer classes to ESL to GED. The one-on-one learning environment allows for a unique experience for each individual, and I am incredibly proud to be a small part of this great organization.

As a donor, I have attended many fundraisers. I have heard testimontials of adult learners and learned of their success with literacy. I am convinced that their success is due to the personal care and attention that the staff of LVPC has supplied and their loyal tutors. I am proud to be associated with this non-profit that helps adult learners of Pitt County!

I come from a family of nine brothers and sisters and of my nine siblings only three of us have a functional education. The other six of my siblings have graduated high school, but can only read and write on a third grade level. I have wanted to help them improve their reading and writing skills, but living out of state made that very difficult if not impossible. Not being able to help my siblings has haunted me for years. Literacy Volunteers of America-Pitt County has given me the opportunity to do for people here in Pitt County what I can't do for my siblings. I still deeply desire to help my siblings move forward with their reading and writing skills, but I get great satisfaction from being able to help those here in Pitt County improve their skills. I am greatly appreciative of the Literacy Volunteers of America-Pitt County for their services and giving me the opportunity to give back and help improve the lives of the people in the community.

As a teacher, I understand how valuable a good education is. Literacy Volunteers – Pitt County offers a service that is not only helpful to the community, but vital. Through its programs and volunteer-tutor relationships, the organization has become a saving grace for people seeking a degree, computer literacy, or the skills to simply function better in society. Through television, radio, and social media, Literacy Volunteers has become a growing presence in the area over the past couple of years. Pitt County is a better place because of this organization.

Hello, I am taking a computer classl second one here, Is fun, informative, and connects all the bits and pieces for peresons such as myself who have a "Swiss cheese" knowledge of computers and social networking sites! What I know about such, I know well, and then there are the holes! For example, I have had Facebook for years and probablhy used it more in the two weeks since we studied it in class than during all that time! Any Literacy Volunteers agency is a valuable service for so many reasons; as they state, literacy skills help with so many life factors; for example, negoitiating the health care maze -more literacy equals less cost for an individual! I have served on two Literacy Boards, and learned so much valuable information. Please support any such agency, wheter is it by referring persons, donating time, money or books. If you are not able to do this, please learn about your local agency - you may be surprised - for example, there are free and very detailed computer skills classes here and very patient teachers.

I have volunteered for the Literacy Volunteers Adult Computer Classes for two years now. The experience has been quite rewarding. I have had the oppertunity to work with some amazing men and women from various backgrounds and ethnicities. I have helped to teach them various ways to utilize the computer and internet. In return, they have shown me how generosity and patience can make a difference in someone's life. I am honored to say that I am a literacy volunteer!

This has been a great experience. I completed Applications I, and I am now in the Applications II class. Information has been very interesting, and helpful. Tonight I learned how to Skype. Really looking forward to using this program with my out of state family. Great service to the community.
