The LCNV Mission
The Literacy Council of Northern Virginia is a non-profit educational organization that recruits and trains volunteers to teach adults who need help reading, writing, speaking, and understanding English.
Since 1962, the Literacy Council has trained thousands of volunteers to provide one-to-one tutoring to adults throughout Northern Virginia.
We are also on Facebook AND Twitter! Look for the “Literacy Council of Northern Virginia”.
A non-profit organization (abbreviated NPO , also not-for-profit ) is a legally constituted organization whose objective is to support or engage in activities of public or private interest without any external commercial or monetary profit.
Nonprofit organizations are a crucial part of our society, providing help to the needy, education for a lifetime, funds for good causes, and social services.
