Literacy Volunteers of South Sarasota County

Literacy Volunteers of South Sarasota County



About Us

Literacy Volunteers trains volunteers to help foreign-born adults learn English as a Second Language (ESL) and to help English-speaking adults improve their reading and writing skills. Part-time Coordinators in our Venice and North Port offices match trained volunteers with adults who request our services. Tutoring services are free to adult learners.
Literacy Volunteers produces positive outcomes for both employees and employers. Employees gain the ability to understand, learn, and apply information and a better ability to work in teams. Employers benefit from improved employee morale and self-esteem, increased quality of work, and improved capacity to solve problems.


  • Literacy Changes Lives
  • We can help your employees improve their English skills.
