Since LVCC has only four paid staff members, there are various activities and functions that volunteers can perform at LVCC to help us fulfill our mission. In the office, we often can use help with the many mailings that we make throughout the year to inform tutors and volunteers of what is happening, to let people know about special events (like our fundraising efforts), to solicit donations and contributions to fund our efforts, and so forth. Copying and collating the mailings, stuffing envelopes, and applying postage are very useful volunteer contributions. At times filing, typing, answering phones, taking messages, returning calls, and greeting visitors would be the assistance required. We have a small library which is available to our tutors to help them with their efforts, and we welcome assistance from those that have some library or language teaching skills and experience to organize our holdings and help our tutors in choosing materials. We also welcome monitors to help in our computer language lab. At times, our staff could use some assistance in preparing for tutor workshops by helping to setup the training area and ensure the needed materials are ready. Outside the office, we often need additional help with the special events that help raise funds, such as the Fashion Show and the Holiday Barnes and Noble Gift Wrapping program.
