Volunteer Opportunities

L C M Volunteer Mission Partnership Opportunities

The Lott Carey Baptist Mission Schools, in its program of rehabilitation/renovation of its campuses (main campus in Brewerville and outstation campus in Bamboo Town, Gbapolu County), highly appreciates and welcome volunteer mission team. The task of rebuilding of the Lott Carey schools is enormous and we will need support both local and foreign. Our facilities and buildings, during the civil war years, suffered major structural damages, minimal repairs, and some buildings even destroyed. Our academic program also needs enhancement.

We therefore endeavor to encourage partnerships through churches, associations, institutions and organizations who have a vision to ensure that children be provided with the best quality of education (nursery to secondary) and a passion for missions to work alongside us even as we build a wholesome, nurturing, safe learning environment.

These are some of the opportunities available for volunteer mission teams to consider:

  • Volunteers will to come and work with our teachers in workshops/seminars (1 to 2 weeks);

  • volunteer teachers (all levels) willing to come and spend between 2 weeks and up to a semester teaching classes;

  • team-teach with LCM teachers, help review and evaluate our present academic program for improvement. (Areas of need English/Language Arts, Math, Sciences, Life sciences, Music and creative arts program, Library specialist);

  • Develop a teacher exchange program that may afford our teachers the opportunity for short/long term study aboard programs with educational related institutions, thus improving the skills of our academic staff;

We need to provide adequate and functional academic spaces for our students; repair/renovate/equip our dinning hall (presently used for classroom spaces) to enable us institute a nutritional feeding program for our students; complete construction of an unfinished 4-classroom building; renovate/furnish and equip science labs; renovate and equip our home economics classes; construction of a play area for our pre-primary division; renovation of the basketball court (including new backboards and goals)as well as volleyball court. We also hope, as resources become available, to be able to fence in and secure the school’s physical property (29 acres) which is now vulnerable to encroachment, property theft and pilferage.

Medical Program – there are many and various medical needs among our student population, their families, school employees and staff and the community. We envisage developing, equipping and staffing our clinic to serve as a community clinic to provide adequate and reasonable medical services.  Thus the need for medical doctors (physicians, dentists, internists, pediatricians, Nurse practitioners, nurses, etc  who can come as time permits and provide these services as a ministry.
