VITA Mission
The mission of the VITA adult literacy organization is to promote literacy by teaching reading and writing skills to undereducated adults so that each individual may become more independent of others in the structuring and directing of his or her own life.

History of VITA
Volunteer Instructors Teaching Adults, Inc. was incorporated in May 1982 as a non-profit, community- based adult literacy program and was organized through the collaborative efforts of members of the Lafayette Parish School Board, RSVP, Altrusa Club, Lafayette Public Library, and community leaders in the fields of business and education.

We provide education services for adults with limited English reading, writing, and speaking skills. Since its inception, VITA has provided literacy services to over 10,000 adults in the Acadiana community. VITA's efforts to provide lifelong learning opportunities for educationally disadvantaged adults have allowed adult learners to reach their full potential as parents, workers and citizens.
