Who We Are

Literacy Volunteers of Illinois was founded in 1979 to serve as a technical assistance and training agency for volunteer literacy programs affiliated with the national Literacy Volunteers of America organization.

LVI began by working with just four LVA programs, and today provides an array of resources and services to staff, tutors, and students in some 100 adult literacy programs statewide.

Literacy Volunteers of Illinois is a statewide organization committed to developing and supporting volunteer literacy programs that help families, adults and out-of-school teens increase their literacy skills.

  • Establish a network of trained and dedicated tutors;
  • Foster student leadership;
  • Make our services available to as many individuals as possible;
  • Increase awareness of our services to the broadest possible audience.

  • We treat tutors and students with courtesy, dignity and respect;
  • We build our programs and networks with integrity;
  • We make our services available to all in need, without discrimination;
  • We practice sound fiscal management;
  • We honor our commitments.
