This school year, the LUM After School Program expanded to serve 80 students from each school corporation in our area — SO — additional Bus Drivers are needed. Drivers transport children from their schools at dismissal time to the ASP site at Central Presbyterian Church, Lafayette, in one of LUM’s 14 seat buses.

  • Hours: Monday – Friday, 2:15 – 3:15 p.m.
  • Dates: NOW through May 23, 2018, when Lafayette School Corporation is in session
  • Stipend: $1,300 for the school year
  • Route: LUM Youth Center to Schools to Central Presbyterian Church
  • Requirements: Must have a valid driver’s license and a good driving record.

Please consider signing up NOW to become a Bus Driver for this important ministry and make a difference in the lives of children. If interested please call or email the LUM Youth Programs director, Amanda Bajzatt (765-423-2691 | abajzatt@lumserve.org ).


PICTURED ABOVE — Chip is retired from Purdue University and has been driving a bus for LUM for over three years. He shared, “I love children and I like to drive — and it keeps me young of mind.” LUM provides a “unique opportunity for working families,” who are trying hard to succeed and now have one less thing to worry about because “they know that their children are in a safe and caring environment at LUM.”

It’s surprisingly much more fulfilling than merely driving a bus around town. Chip learns each student’s name and uses his time with the students to ask them about their day as well as teach them to be kind, caring and respectful of each other. “We (volunteer bus drivers) have an opportunity to have a positive impact on the children and offer a service to working families trying to make it.”
