Volunteering is a great way to get involved with the school and to see the school from the inside. In addition to helping to advance the LMS mission of transforming lives to change our world, you will be extending your community as you build connections with others, helping us to more fully implement our mission than we could do without volunteer involvement — and you will be helping to keep LMS affordable.
