Who We Are
Literacy Volunteers of Illinois was founded in 1979 to serve as a technical assistance
and training agency for volunteer literacy programs affiliated with the national Literacy Volunteers of America organization.  LVI began by working with just four LVA programs,
and today provides an array of resources and services to staff, tutors, and
students in some 100 adult literacy programs statewide.
