Red Cloud Volunteer Program

Year-of-Service Opportunity: Red Cloud Volunteer Program

Red Cloud Indian School, a Lakota Catholic school in Pine Ridge, South Dakota is seeking recent college graduates to join our Volunteer Program for the 2019-2020 school year. They have a couple positions still available!

Volunteers serve as teachers in Red Cloud School for 1-3 years while living in intentional communities of 6-9 other volunteers. No previous teaching experience required, but only an adventurous spirit and willingness to learn and to work inter-culturally.

Volunteers practice simple living and have ample opportunities for faith development, including community spirituality nights, days of reflection and retreats.

Volunteers receive room and board, a monthly stipend, health insurance, and access to a shared vehicle.

Are you interested, or do you know a young adult who might be?

Contact Volunteer Coordinator Ryen Dwyer SJ at or 312-522-2567.

St. Columkille’s sister parish, Our Lady of the Sioux, is part of the mission of Red Cloud, and many volunteers worship there.
