Dates Volunteer is Needed:
Description of the Volunteer Opportunity:
Did you know that 54% of adults in the US have a literacy below 6th grade level? 46% of New Mexicans are at level 2 literacy or below (on a scale from 1-6), while most jobs require literacy at levels 3 and above (7th grade+). The mission of LVSF is to provide free tutoring to adults in reading, writing, and speaking English to strengthen our community, families, and the workforce.
The Board of Directors is essential to this mission. It is key to LVSF’s planning, fundraising, community outreach, and events. Board members act as voting members of the Board with full authority and responsibility to develop policies, procedures, and regulations for the operation of LVSF; to monitor LVSF’s financial health, programs, and overall performance; and to provide the Executive Director with the resources to meet the needs of those that LVSF serves.

Who Will Be Impacted Through This Project:
The LVSF Board enables the program to serve adults who are in need of basic literacy and math tutoring to help them meet their goals, such as attain their High School Equivalency, get a good job, read to their kids, etc. The benefits of learning basic reading, writing, and math skills extend to learners' families and communities.
