Who We Are
Literacy Partners of Orange County, New York, Inc. or Literacy Orange
• is a not-for-profit agency
• is dedicated to raising the literacy rate in our community through one-to-one or small group adult tutoring
What We Do
For our students:
• evaluate speaking, reading, and writing skills
• match each student with a tutor

• support students to make the experience a positive one
Why We Do It
Adults need strong literacy skills:
• to raise children who have strong literacy skills.
• to be good employees.
• to keep themselves and their families healthy.
“In the United States, an estimated 30 million people over the age of sixteen read no better than the average elementary school child.”
Literacy Orange is a volunteer based adult literacy provider formed through a merger of Literacy Volunteers of Eastern Orange County (LVeoc) and Literacy Volunteers of Western Orange County (LVWOC). On this website you can find information on our programs and services, how to become a volunteer, how to contact us, and news of our current events.
