We are now part of Literacy New Jersey!

We are very excited to announce that Literacy Volunteers in Mercer County has joined the merger of seven adult literacy programs in New Jersey into one unified organization — Literacy New Jersey — effective February 18, 2014. We wholeheartedly believe that this merger of seven strong groups will enhance our ability to thrive and fulfill our mission in the years to come. We look forward to increased effectiveness, expanded capacity, greater financial strength, and the opportunity for more influential leadership as we advocate for and educate about adult literacy, together.

Please watch for more news about our new status over the next few months.

“60,000 adults in Mercer County read at fifth grade level or below. They can’t read job applications, prescription labels, bedtime stories or ballots.” Literacy Volunteers in Mercer County was founded to fight these problems through free literacy training. Please join our fight.


There is a strong need for literacy services in Mercer County. The lack of basic skills strongly correlates with a wide range of problems - poverty, crime, loss of productivity in the workplace, and lack of parental involvement in children's education. Research demonstrates that as literacy levels of parents increase, so does their child's educational success.

LVMC volunteers provide free, confidential services to adults by way of tutoring sites and community partnerships throughout the county. What makes LVMC unique is its formal training and support services for tutors, which enable tutors to build effective teaching relationships with their students.

Becoming a volunteer tutor is not the only way that you can participate in our work. You can help support LVMC in other ways by volunteering or contributing.
