CSER Course Pathing School of Education

Welcome to the CSER course path for the School of Education. Below you can find organizations recommended by Education faculty uniquely suited for education students. For more information about these organizations or for help registering for CSER, please email cser@liberty.edu.


Freshmen & Sophomore

Freshmen and Sophomore education majors can gain hands-on experience in the education field by serving in a variety of ways locally. Education students should consider serving in local churches by leading a small group or helping with the children and youth ministries. The churches listed here are hand-picked by Education faculty.

Students have the opportunity to tutor, lead activities, and build relationships with youth with organizations like Amazement Square and Team Genesis. They can also work with at-risk youth or kids with learning disabilities through Lynchburg Youth Group Home and the Arc of Central Virginia.

For something closer to campus, students can support LCA staff in classrooms, the office, the library, and at events. Student can also serve on campus through SGA clubs such as Autism Speaks U, or provide tutoring services through the Academic Success Center.
