Get Involved



Volunteers open windows to new skills, challenges and opportunities. Volunteers change lives!

The Literacy Coalition is a community-based volunteer organization committed to improving literacy and promoting lifelong learning. Our mission, to improve the literacy levels of those living and working in Steuben County, is only possibly with the help of our dedicated volunteers.

Each year, over 100 volunteers provide direct services to program participants as tutors, classroom aides, office aides, special event planners, and committee or task force members. Assignments can last a day, a month, a year or longer.

As a volunteer for the Steuben County Literacy Coalition, you can expect to:

  • Be trained for your assignment,
  • Receive the information and resources necessary to do your job,
  • Be valued,
  • Be heard,
  • Be a part of a team,
  • Be challenged, and
  • Be fulfilled.

For more information about how you can change a life, call our office today. We will set up an appointment to speak with you personally or mail a prospective volunteer packet to you. You can also Contact Us online to let us know you are interested. We look forward to hearing from you. If you would like to fill out a volunteer application click Volunteer Application PDF.
