(Voorhees, NJ) – The Freeholder Board and Literacy Volunteers of Camden County (LVCC) invite you to make a difference in the life of an adult who wants to learn to speak English or improve his reading or math skills.  

A free Tutor Training Workshop will be conducted by the LVCC at the M. Allan Vogelson Regional Branch Library on five on five Tuesday evenings: April 11, 18, 25, May 2, 16, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.  The library is located at 203 Laurel Road in Voorhees Township.

“The Literacy Volunteers of Camden County offer an extraordinary service to the residents of Camden County who are eager to learn,” said Freeholder Bill Moen, liaison to the Camden County Library System.  “The volunteers provide access to numerous opportunities for their students and expand their world.”

No experience is necessary, just the willingness to reach out and help a motivated learner.  Call Literacy Volunteers of Camden County at (856) 772-1636 ext. 7331 for more information or sign up online at


LVCC provides free one-on-one and small group tutoring in reading, math and English for speakers of other languages and Camden County adults at the lowest levels of literacy.  Many Camden County residents lack functional English literacy skills and this impedes their ability to acquire productive employment, assist their children in schoolwork and become active community members.  Literacy Volunteers of Camden County addresses this problem by training local volunteers to instruct these adults using a flexible, learner-centered approach.  This year LVCC has over 160 volunteer tutors working with 200 students.
