Volunteer Trip Schedule
Our volunter season consists of weekly trips that run from early February thru late October. Below is the list of volunteer trips for the current and upcoming season.
Our volunteer experience is a unique combination of giving and learning. Throughout the season we reserve several trip weeks for our youth and senior groups, which include special activities and reduced physical workload.
Regular Volunteer Program
Due to the nature of our volunteer work projects and topics, the minimum age to participate in our regular program is 12. As a volunteer, you will actively engage in various projects across the reservation, while learning about the Lakota culture.
Our Kids' Week program is created for children ages 8-11, and led by our trained staff. Children learn about Lakota culture through arts and crafts, trips, music, and activities while older family members participate in our regular program. Cost is $227.50, which includes 4% tax.
For our 55-and-up volunteers we have created Senior Week. This volunteer program offers the complete cultural immersion found in our regular program, while working on less physically demanding work projects.
