VolunteerCorps appreciates your unflinching support in raising the success rate of Osun State students in the national examinations so far.
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 again 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 2019/2020 coaching session in Osun State of Nigeria commenced in October 2019 and about 2, 096 students have been enrolled into the programme with about 17 volunteers in 4 centres. Preliminary enrolment procedures for the students are ongoing alongside tutoring classes which are being organised during the weekends, from Friday to Sunday. Currently, volunteers tutor the students with the previous teaching materials which were bought and distributed to the various coaching centres during the previous coaching session (2018/2019 session). These teaching materials are barely sufficient and we wish to distribute more teaching materials to the volunteer teachers and study materials to the students. We also intend to provide decent meals to the students and teachers especially on Saturdays, due to prolonged hours of tutoring.
Enrolment into the 2019/2020 coaching session is still open to more students as at the time of this report and we require funds to effectively execute this project, especially as we intend to organize trainings for Volunteer teachers in 2020. The training would not only enhance the quality of the tutoring delivered to the students, but would also encourage volunteer participation and equip the teachers for the required task.
