Steps for Logging Your LSE Service Hours

LSE Log Site – x2Vol.com

It is with great excitement that we announce the new LSE Volunteer Website to keep track of ALL Student volunteer hours. x2Vol brings new features such as more flexibility in account management, input itemized volunteer hours, view LCS service hour goals and hours accumulated, access many LCS community volunteer opportunities and so much more!

x2Vol is for LCS Students grades 3-12 only due to accounts being associated with student email addresses.  Students in grades Kg. – 2nd Grade are encouraged use a paper log until they enter 3rd grade.

Please read the instructions below to complete your student account registration.

  1. Go to www.x2VOL.com and click JOIN.
  2. Type in your School Name or zip code and click Search.

  4. Enter the remaining profile fields and click proceed.
  5. Set your interests and skills and click proceed.

Student accounts will remain active until a student graduates from LCS.  The account will remain active until July 15 of the graduation year. Graduates are responsible for downloading or printing their own service transcript for future use.
