VSVS Applications


What do VSVS members do? Each member joins a team of 3-4 volunteers. Each team will teach four different lessons in the same classroom. The classrooms are off-campus and the lessons last 50 - 60 minutes. Allow 25 minutes for travel each way. For more information, please attend one of the following informational meetings:

Transportation

Do you have a car or access to an OACS car and would you be willing to drive your team to and from the school? Every year, VSVS is limited only by the number of drivers we have available. If you have a car, we would appreciate if you would volunteer to drive! VSVS will reimburse you for mileage if you use a personal car.
Most schools are within 10 minutes of campus.

VSVS is also willing to pay for 1-day passes (X4 classroom visits per semester) for parking in the 25th Ave garage so that students who live off-campus, but do not commute to Vanderbilt by car, can be a team driver.
How many other passengers can you take?
