Boiler ESTEEM Student Leaders Serve LUM

St. Thomas Aquinas Center’s Student Leaders

Last week, the student leaders from the Thomas Aquinas Center’s Boiler ESTEEM program prepared and served a meal to the guests at the LUM Emergency Shelter. The Boiler ESTEEM students chose LUM for their project. ESTEEM is a nationwide program to develop the leadership skills of young Catholics — and part of their experience includes a major service project. To view more PHOTOS , click HERE.

LUM is grateful to St. Tom’s and the Boiler ESTEEM program student leaders for their continued support. If you or your group wants to VOLUNTEER or prepare a meal for the guests at the LUM Emergency Shelter, click  HERE.

Meet the After School Program Team

55 Students | K – 8th Grade | 3 Hours Per Day

The LUM After School Program  provides safe, fun and enriching childcare for up to 60 children in Kindergarten to 8th grade in Tippecanoe County. The children are transported by bus from school to the LUM Ray Ewry Youth Center.

Tuesday – After School Program Extends Hours

A big teachers rally scheduled this Tuesday, November 19, at the Indiana State Capital has prompted many schools, including Lafayette School Corporation and Tippecanoe School Corporation schools, to close for the day. In support of local teachers, the LUM After School Program will provide childcare for the entire day on Tuesday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

School officials say so many teachers requested personal time off for the rally that they wouldn’t be able to find enough substitute teachers to cover classrooms. It is being reported that at least 4,000 teachers have registered for the rally.

LUM Students Explore the Arts in the City


The LUM After School Program students recently took a trip to First Baptist Church, Lafayette, to participate in the 12th annual Sidewalk Chalk Festival.

The students spent the afternoon drawing masterpieces in chalk on the city’s sidewalks and enjoying the artwork created by local artists.

Thanks to First Baptist Church for inviting our students each year. They learned a lot and had a blast.
