Platte Valley Literacy Association relies on the talents of volunteers, just like you, to provide educational services necessary for our students to achieve their goals.


What do PVLA volunteers do?

PVLA volunteers have the opportunity to work one on one with adults studying English or preparing for the GED exams. On occasion, we have openings for those who would like to volunteer as a classroom assistant. Periodically, we also have a need for volunteers to assist with an event. We ask volunteers to make a minimum commitment of at least one hour each week.  Some assignments may require a longer hourly requirement.


What skills are required to be a PVLA volunteer?

You don’t have to be a certified teacher! PVLA provides training and learning opportunities. Our volunteers are given appropriate assignments according to skill, interest, availability, and training.

Basic requirements include:

  • A knowledge of basic reading, math, and/or language skills
  • The ability to tutor a minimum of one hour a week
  • A desire to help others


What are the benefits of volunteering with PVLA?

  • Development of marketable skills for future career opportunities
  • Training and other learning opportunities
  • Recognition at an annual event
  • The satisfaction of helping others
