Our mission is to empower individuals to reach their educational goals

Platte Valley Literacy Association (PVLA) has been proudly serving the Columbus, Nebraska area for 25 years. As a United Way Agency, we strive to meet the educational needs of our community. PVLA manages several programs and supports Central Community College’s Adult Education Program.

Platte Valley Literacy Association evolved from a group of volunteer tutors in the early 1980’s. As the director of the Columbus Public Library, Robert Trautwein was instrumental in responding to the need for more reading tutors. Mr. Trautwein wrote many grants that initiated programs that are still flourishing today. Many passionate individuals have shaped our organization into what it is now.

In 1990, Platte Valley Literacy Association was incorporated as a 501©3 non-profit. As the years have gone by, PVLA has adapted in order to provide valuable services that address the current needs of community members. We are always interested in creating partnerships with likeminded organizations to enhance our programming and increase our ability to refer our clients to local services.
