Literacy Volunteers receives NCCF grant

Literacy Volunteers of Chautauqua County was awarded a Community Benefit Grant from the Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation for new instructor materials for their tutoring library.

The new books and workbooks replaced an underdeveloped collection of tutoring materials.

LVCC provides free one-on-one and small group tutoring in basic literacy, English as a second language, and preparation for the GED and other gateway examinations. Tutoring is learner-centered, goal-oriented, and geared toward the needs of each individual student.

The NCCF is one of nearly 700 community foundations in the United States today. Founded in 1986, the NCCF is dedicated to improving the community through the promotion of local philanthropy, strategic grantmaking and community leadership. Served by a small staff and governed by an all-volunteer board of directors, the organization has distributed over $9.4 million in the form of grants and scholarships within the community. Truly community in nature, the NCCF is an organization created by and for the people of northern Chautauqua County.
