During your Re-Member volunteer week, you will have an opportunity to work with, and learn from the Oglala Lakota people who live on the Pine Ridge Reservation. You will have three days of work projects, two days of cultural immersion and tours, and daily opportunities to interact with and learn from Oglala Lakota presenters and fellow volunteers.

Each day begins with a session after breakfast, where we share wisdom from elders of various indigenous groups. Each evening, your group will have the opportunity to process the events of the day, followed by a question and answer period with our staff. We also provide free time each evening, which groups may use for journaling, reflection, or further processing. Whenever possible, Re-Member staff will provide additional engagement opportunities, including visits to powwows, community dinners, and other relevant and appropriate cultural events.

Trip weeks run Saturday to Friday. Please make travel arrangements to arrive at Re-Member between 2 and 4 p.m., mountain time on Saturday. Departure from Re-Member on Friday morning should be planned for no later than 9 a.m. All meals, transportation, and necessary materials for our work projects are furnished as part of your trip fee.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the nature of our volunteer work projects and topics, the minimum age to participate in our Regular Program is 12. For children ages 8-11, please refer to our Kids' Week.
