The lessons are implemented by volunteers and the LVC volunteer will be present to give guidance when needed.

The LVC Volunteer will also be involved in supporting other academic needs of the students including monitoring grades and attendance, providing student support at school, transporting parents to school meetings and/or attending school events.
