We currently have approximately 60 volunteers working on seven different bus teams. This number does not include the team of students who help the bus when they are not away studying. Each member of the bus team has to complete three sessions of training and provide documentation that meets with the LYM Safeguarding policy.
The bus teams are as follow

Each team, enjoy every time they go out. You will find our bus teams warm and welcoming and doing their best to serve their community and the young people. They are not paid to work on the bus, out of their love for God, they give their time up for young people in the Boston town and surrounding villages.
