Literacy Volunteers of the Montachusett Area is a private, non-profit organization founded in 1973, affiliated with Literacy Volunteers of Massachusetts.

Literacy Volunteers mission is to promote and foster increased literacy in the Montachusett area through trained volunteer tutoring and to empower adults for whom English is a second language. We encourage and aid individuals, groups or organizations desiring to increase literacy through voluntary programs.

​Literacy Volunteers provides free, confidential, and individualized tutoring in basic literacy and English for speakers of other languages (ESOL) to adults and out-of-school youths over the age of 18 through the use of professionally trained and supported volunteer tutors. Literacy Volunteers recruits, screens, interviews, assesses and places students on a waiting list until matched with a volunteer tutor. The waiting list often is 30-40 people.





We have the detailed answers to most-asked questions when tutors are considering volunteering their time. You may be surprised to learn you are qualified, if interested.
