LARY Buddy: Lawrence Assistance Reaching Youth is a cooperative with Edison Elementary School in which Lawrence mentors are matched with an at-risk student. Mentors have the opportunity to volunteer with youth in the community and Edison buddies have the direct adult attention that many of them lack in other environments. Learn more at LARY.
VITAL Tutoring: Volunteers in Tutoring at Lawrence matches any student from the Fox Valley with a Lawrence tutor. Students are most often referred to the program by school personnel or past participants from the program. Together, Lawrence tutors are able to provide valuable tutoring to local students, while keeping their time commitment to only about one hour per week. Learn more at VITAL
