As a learner-centered literacy service since 1968, Literacy Nassau provides services each year for hundreds of Nassau adults who are functionally illiterate, assisting them, their families – and hopefully future generations – toward self-sufficiency and personal success.
Since its inception when it was known as Literacy Volunteers of America – Nassau County, Literacy Nassau has had a single and unwavering mission: to promote and foster literacy in Nassau County among adult learners in need of improved skills in Basic Literacy and English for Speakers of Other Languages. Through trained volunteer tutors in one-to-one and small group learning experiences students are matched with tutors to achieve the educational, economic and social goals they and their tutors have identified as important to them.
Students are referred to Literacy Nassau by family, friends, local libraries and other community-based organizations. Volunteers are recruited from all over Nassau County. Tutors are trained, certified and supported by Literacy Nassau throughout the year.
