How You Can Help



As An Individual

"There is no greater joy than teaching an adult to read, to share that excitement when everything comes together for your student."

There are many ways that you can contribute your talents and experience the reward of bringing the gift of literacy to adult learners in Ontario County.

"I'd like to help Literacy Volunteers but I just don't have time right now to volunteer."

If you cannot contribute time, there are many other meaningful ways that you can promote literacy in your community. Literacy Volunteers of Ontario - Yates is a 501©3 organization with very low administrative expenses. Thus, you can be assured that your cash and other contributions will directly benefit the adults, who need extra help to read, write, and speak English, to meet their personal and career goals. All contributions will be gratefully acknowledged in writing.
