Mission Statement:

LCVLC provides free tutoring services to adults who need help with basic reading, writing, math skills and English as a Second Language. We promote public awareness of literacy issues and assist volunteer tutors to carry out our mission. Student/tutor teams meet in area public spaces, such as area libraries and college public rooms, determined by the student's schedule.

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

LCVLC believes everyone should be able to read, write, speak in English, compute, and solve problems to the best of their ability or learning style and/or at levels of proficiency necessary to function on the job, in the family, and in society.

Program History:

The Lewis Clark Valley Literacy Council was organized and approved in 1985. LCVLC has been incorporated in the State of Washington as a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization since September 1986. LCVLC is housed in the Walla Walla Community College/Clarkston Center on the Mezzanine level. A part-time Coordinator provides program administration, tutor and student support. All funding depends upon private and corporate donations through membership fees or an Active Benefactors Club. All services are free and confidential. The LCVLC works closely with other programs serving adult learners in the Lewis Clark Valley.


The 24th Annual Trivia Bee, the major fund raiser for the literacy council, is scheduled for February 28, 2014 at the CrossPoint Alliance Church, 1330 Powers Ave, Lewiston ID.

Additional Information:

There is an ongoing need for volunteers to provide promotional opportunities which will expand the public awareness of the literacy programs existence. Volunteer board members are always welcome, they are responsible for all fund raising, grant writing, and networking to support the students in their educational or employment goals. We, also, need volunteers to provide assistance using the various social media, computer programs, and technical support. Financial supporters or employers willing to provide on-the-job training to students are also welcome.
