Literacy Volunteers of Rensselaer County offers more ways to help than ever before. Join us for a one-hour Volunteer Opportunities Information Session at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, August 25th at Faith Lutheran Church, 50 Leversee Road, Troy, or on Wednesday, September 10th at 12:00 noon at the LVORC office, 1915 Fifth Avenue, Troy. Call 274-8526 to reserve a space.

We are looking for volunteers to be individual tutors to adult learners. At any given time, there are more than 40 adult learners waiting to be paired with tutors. A new tutor training workshop is scheduled to begin at Faith Lutheran Church on Monday, September 8th at 6:00 p.m. In addition, we are seeking reading mentors for Everybody Wins! Power Lunch, a program where adults serve as positive reading role models for elementary school kids in Troy, Cohoes and Albany. There is also a need for math tutors and for tutors to work with incarcerated learners in Rensselaer County Jail.

 Literacy Volunteers welcomes all kinds of volunteers, from tutors to administrative helpers and event planners. As a volunteer you can develop new skills, make friends, and see how your efforts make a difference in your community. LVORC recruits and trains volunteers to provide individual and small group tutoring. A professional staff supports volunteers who make our programs run. For more information, visit
