Platte Valley Literacy Association (PVLA) has been proudly serving the Columbus, Nebraska area for over 25 years. Our mission is to empower individuals to reach their educational goals. Your future is important to us. We strive to provide educational opportunities that will have a meaningful impact on your life. We firmly believe literacy holds great power. Literacy is so much more than reading and writing skills. The depth of literacy lies in your ability to use your skills to get where you want to be in life. Our goal is to provide you with a quality service in a comfortable learning environment. It is our privilege to be part of your educational journey.
We have expanded our citizenship program to offering it all year around instead of twice a year. 100% of all donations raised for PVLA stay right here in the community. All donations will go towards our citizenship program and used for curriculum and materials for both our instructor and for our volunteer tutors of our citizenship class. It costs approximately $750 to apply for naturalization, so we offer our citizenship classes free of charge to not only those that are in the process of becoming a United States Citizens, but those who have yet to start the process. Thank you for your past, continued, and future support.
