Dormitory parents - Senegal

Do you want play a vital role in extending God's kingdom in West Africa? One significant way of doing this is through an MK school, which enables missionaries to share God's love with Africans yet to know Christ. Bourofaye Christian School (BCS) is integral to Christian ministry across West Africa. We serve the families of missionaries by providing excellent education in a Christ-centred community to extend the kingdom of God. BCS is seeking dormitory (dorm) parents for our multicultural dorms. These positions suits married couples. This rewarding role includes being a Mum and Dad to the students, who are separated from their parents, encouraging them in their emotional, spiritual and physical growth. Dorm parents help the kids get off to school and after school aid the students with homework, and help provide recreational activities etc in their free time. They also lead the students through morning and evening quiet times. Dorm parents live in the same building as the students (in their own separate wing), and as such are available to them 24/7 as needed. It's a demanding but hugely satisfying role!

Qualifications: Potential dormitory parents are required to go through MK Pre-Arrival Orientation (10 day course in the UK) or an equivalency in discussion with the relevant leaders. They will also need to be enthusiastic, flexible, approachable and love children i.e. you'll be expanding the size of your family exponentially!
