The Greenville Literacy Association has been proudly serving the Greenville, South Carolina, area for over 50 years by providing literacy instruction to adults who ask for assistance. Over the years, this vital non-profit organization has been able to expand services to include four fully-equipped, fully-staffed learning centers throughout the area. The Greenville Literacy Association also partners with local church and neighborhood literacy programs.
The association depends greatly on the efforts of community volunteers, who are recruited and trained by the Greenville Literacy Association to instruct adults. The association has a long history of partnering with other community organizations such as United Way of Greenville, Lifelong Learning, Greenville Technical College, OneStop, United Ministries and various churches and community centers. The Greenville Literacy Association is always in need of new volunteers. There are a variety of volunteer opportunities to assist in the instruction of reading, math, writing, computer skills, English as a Second Language and Pre-GED. Tutors are trained by attending a workshop and then are able to help instruct adult students in the community. If you are not able to volunteer as a tutor, but you still want to help, you can volunteer as part of the annual Book Sale or help send out mailings or assist with general office tasks. Of course, the Greenville Literacy Association also depends on generous monetary donations from the community as well. The Greenville Literacy Association is an important part of the Greenville community which continues to demonstrate the giving spirit of local community members.
