The mission of Literacy Volunteers of Upshur County is to foster and promote literacy and life skills among adults in Upshur County and the surrounding counties who have low-level reading and math skills.
The primary focus of Literacy Volunteers is to increase reading, math, computer, and life skills for learners who are below the fourth grade level to the point at which they will be able to take advantage of increased opportunities such as job training programs, General Equivalency Diploma (GED) classes, or other employment opportunities such as the military or trade schools. Tutoring is free, one-on-on, and strictly confidential.
This site was created to give Literacy Volunteers of Upshur County an online presence and the means to interact with other individuals and organizations so that we may build a network of resources for our students and tutors. Take a look around our site, peruse our news feed or photo gallery, check out our calendar and get a feel for what our organization does not only for our students, but also for our community.
Our address and contact information is located in the "Contact Us" area of the site.
