Your unwavering support and contributions towards the Volunteer Corps (VC) Coaching Program in Osun state is highly appreciated.
The Volunteer Corps 2018/2019 coaching session which commenced in December 2018 with about 3,000 students came to an end in March 2019. 8, 769 students benefited from the coaching program. Classes were organised during the weekends, from Friday to Sunday. In all, nine (9) weeks of intensive coaching took place, as some weeks were lost to the presidential and gubernatorial elections. Teaching Materials were bought and distributed to the various coaching centres. However, due to the unavailability of required funds, plans to feed the students and volunteers, as well as distribute study materials to the students did not materialize. The national examinations are ongoing, and we are positive that the coaching program will make meaningful impact in the results of the student who participated.
The 2019/2020 coaching session shall commence fully in October 2019. It is our burning desire to achieve our initial goal of tutoring 10,000 indigent students and helping them succeed at the national examinations. To achieve the foregoing, we intend to start out intensive coaching early enough, with full provision of study/work materials as well as decent meals to the students and teachers.
We hereby express our sincere gratitude to you, for your immeasurable support towards ensuring the success of the 2018/2019 coaching project in Osun State. We rely on your continuing support even as we prepare for the 2019/2020 coaching project.

Please accept our sincere gratitude for your donations towards the Volunteer Corps (VC) Coaching Program.
Since 1992, VC has upheld the tradition of providing free intensive coaching and mentoring sessions to public secondary school students from financially disadvantaged backgrounds. This year, VC is committed to tutoring 10,000 children for free in the State of Osun to improve the results of students of public secondary schools in Osun State.
The Volunteer Corps 2018/2019 coaching session commenced in December 2018 and about 3,000 students have been enrolled into the programme with about 91 volunteers in 16 centres. Parental consent was obtained for all the enrolled students via consent Forms and the students were tested before the commencement of the coaching programme to ascertain their level of knowledge in the subject areas they would be tutored. Classes are organised during the weekends, from Friday to Sunday. Teaching Materials were bought and distributed to the various coaching centres and plans are ongoing to distribute study materials to the students.
Enrolment into the 2018/2019 coaching session is still ongoing as more students are being admitted into the programme even as at the time of this report.
