Give the Gift of Literacy to adults seeking to learn how to read and write English.

LVA is currently accepting applications from adult volunteers from the community to serve on our Board of Trustees. Board members are responsible for setting the Goals and Policies of the organization, developing the Annual Plan, approving and monitoring the Annual Budget, hiring and evaluating the Executive Director, and for overseeing the management of the organization. This adult literacy organization has been serving the Essex County and now also the Passaic County communities since the 1980’s. It trains volunteer adults to tutor other adults in Basic Literacy and English as a Second Language.

Our students realize remarkable personal achievements, like Andrea, named Literacy New Jersey's 2015 “Student of the Year;” Barry, an Army reservist who served in Iraq and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and won the first-place prize for fiction writing in the 2016 New Jersey Association for Lifelong Learning Adult Learner Writing Contest; and Barry, Fernanda and Beralia, our other writing contest winners. Our efforts have been recognized by organizations like Literacy New Jersey, which named LVA, Essex & Passaic Counties the “Outstanding Affiliate” of 2015.

If you would be interested in working with and helping this dynamic, established organization to continue to grow and serve our multicultural community, please complete our “Prospective Board Member Profile” and email it to Board Development Committee at [[http:lvaep.org|lvaep.org]]. The Board usually meets bimonthly, September through June, on Monday evenings at the East Orange Public Library in Essex County. Prior board experience would be beneficial but not required. Most important is your desire to help us share the gift of literacy with all adults seeking to acquire or improve their English language skills to attain their own personal, educational, and career goals.
