Mapping Our Future

When the LCNV board and senior staff met recently to put the finishing touches on a new organizational road map for the coming years, four things became apparent:

  1. The board and staff agree that LCNV can’t rest on its laurels, no matter how well-deserved.
  2. To ensure that anyone in the northern Virginia community who wants to learn to read English has the opportunity, we must find new corporate and individual friends who will contribute to what will be a growing bottom line.
  3. We know that our teachers and volunteer force provide the backbone for this effort, and we must provide more and better training and staff development for all our staff.
  4. Finally, LCNV is ready to take on a leadership role in the literacy effort nationwide.  Already, LCNV is the 7th largest literary council in the country.  Already, other councils look to us as a model.  It is time for us to step forward in new ways to share what we have learned.

The plans are exciting.  You can find the strategic plan on LCNV’s web-site at   We invite you to join us in the work.  Increase your donation this year or volunteer an extra hour a month or bring a new friend!  But don’t miss this chance to be part of the solution.
