Volunteers assist students in grades 1 - 6 with school assignments and projects. Students work individually or in small groups to complete their homework or work on projects. Once homework is finished, students are also required to read independently or to an adult for 20 minutes.
If time allows, students are allowed to play educational games or engage in other supplemental activities. In the process, students also receive help with study skills and organization of assignments.
Water and snacks are provided to ensure that students are better able to focus on their work.
Whenever possible, VU works with the students’ schools to better align assistance. The program seeks to foster a positive attitude toward homework and school and thus bring about an improvement in grades.
Parents are required to escort students to the door for check-in and to come to retrieve and sign out their children by 6:00 p.m.
