Volunteer

Rating: 5

I worked at LVNRV as a work study student for a year. I loved the atmosphere that is at LVNRV. The staff is extremely welcoming, helpful, and flexible. They took their jobs seriously and truly want to help those who wish to better their skills. It is a place with mutual understanding between students and teacher. I watched many student grow and learn incredibly during my year at LVNRV. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone who wants to volunteer or improve their reading, math, or computer literacy skills!

Former staff

Rating: 5

As a former staff member for Literacy Volunteers of the New River Valley (LVNRV), I have been privileged to see firsthand the impact the organization has made in our community. LVNRV has made it possible for a manufacturing worker to learn the reading skills he needs to keep his job, through their ESL program a wife and mother is able to speak to her husband’s family, and another learner started her own business.
Supporting an organization that plainly changes people’s lives is so rewarding and words cannot really convey the significance of the program’s contributions to building a stronger and more self-reliant community.
