A Taste of Literacy is a FREE virtual celebration that will raise awareness and critical funds to open doors of opportunity to adult English language learners in Northern Virginia. This year's theme, "Look How Far I've Come", will feature stories from our learners whose hard work to learn English has helped them to overcome obstacles and reach their goals, even during a pandemic.

On March 25, at LCNV’s “A Taste of Literacy: A Virtual Event” you will be reminded to follow along at your own pace, as you receive fun, inspiring, and informative videos and messages from our staff and learners via email throughout the day. You will also be invited to join us LIVE at noon for a special online event, including a virtual demonstration to give you a personal “TASTE” of what it is like to be in an LCNV class learning a new language.

Our current crisis only highlights the importance of language education for learners who often work in unskilled and low wage jobs. 80% of our learners make less than a living wage and represent many of those who are out of work or required to work despite being at risk. RSVP today to join us in this virtual experience and hear the powerful stories of LCNV students, win fun prizes, and support LCNV and our efforts to offer equity and opportunity to English language learners around the region. Literacy is a Survival Skill!
