Volunteers in Tutoring at Lawrence (VITAL) program is a free service provided by Lawrence student volunteers for K-12 grade students in the Fox Valley area.
The VITAL program matches K-12 grade students from Appleton schools with the greatest academic need to Lawrence student volunteer tutors. Individual and group tutors are required to meet with their tutees once a week for at least ½ hour to 1 hour at the Seeley G. Mudd Library at Lawrence University (see #34 on the campus map). Volunteer hours are submitted to the tutor’s academic record and can fulfill various organization requirements. Through individual tutor-tutee relationships, VITAL is committed to encouraging all students to persevere in their studies and have confidence in their work. The VITAL program also greatly benefits participating tutors as they learn to express clearly and communicate effectively with their tutees.
