Description

Red Cloud Indian School is seeking a recent college graduate to teach High School Social Studies through the Red Cloud Volunteer Program, a post-graduate service and teaching program.

Red Cloud Volunteers serve 1-3 years as teachers at Red Cloud School, a Lakota Catholic Jesuit school system on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota, situated just southwest of the Badlands and southeast of the Black Hills.

Volunteers need not be certified teachers, although Red Cloud will work with education majors to get teacher certification in the state of South Dakota.

Volunteers live simply in intentional communities with 6-9 fellow volunteers, deeply engage Lakota culture, commit to engage the Lakota and Catholic spirituality of Red Cloud while nurturing their own spiritual tradition, and commit to working for justice through education while accompanying people who have been historically marginalized.

Our volunteers have been an integral part of the Red Cloud community for over forty years: teaching, driving school buses, and assisting with extracurricular activities.

Red Cloud provides volunteers with a monthly food and personal stipend, as well as health insurance, housing, and access to a shared vehicle.

Additionally, most volunteers are part-time AmeriCorps members, which allows allows the opportunity for deferral of student loans and reception of an educational award after one's term of service.

To apply: Now accepting applications for the 2022-2023 volunteer cohort! To apply, send a cover letter and resume to our Volunteer Coordinator, at volunteer@redcloudschool.org.
