Description: The Mid-Valley Literacy Center (MVLC) was formed as a 501(c) (3) non-profit in June of 2009.  MVLC was established in direct response to the continuing needs of non-traditional adult native English speakers and English Language Learners (ELL).  Our mission is to empower adults with the literacy skills needed to increase economic stability and overall quality of family life. MVLC primarily serves the non-traditional adult and immigrant community, representing 49 countries and at least 30 languages.  70% percent of our adult students are Latino and 15% percent are white, native English speakers and 15% are African-American, Asian, Native American and Pacific Islander.  Along with English literacy and the GED® Certificate, our Citizenship and Basic Computer courses are critical components in helping students adapt and function in modern society.  These foundational skills open doors to employment and college and help ensure stability.  Our quality volunteer tutors and small class sizes allow us to provide the nurturing and supportive learning environment which consistently produces success.  Each year our volunteers give over 9,000 hours to support our literacy programs in the community.
