Red Cloud Indian School is seeking applicants for the 2019-2020 Red Cloud Volunteer Program cohort. Specifically, we are seeking a Middle School Language Arts Teacher, High School Social Studies Teacher, and High School Activities Director.
Red Cloud Volunteers work for and with the Oglala Lakota people for justice in education on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota.
Red Cloud Volunteers serve primarily as teachers while also earning a commercial driver’s license (CDL) and driving school buses, assist with after-school activities and coaching, and serve Red Cloud in various other capacities. Volunteers share life with fellow volunteers in intentional communities of 6-10, and volunteer life is shaped by the the program pillars of: Justice in Education, Spirituality, Community, and Living Simply.
Although previous educational experience is valued, this is not a requirement.
Red Cloud Volunteers receive:
Room and board
Health insurance (including vision and dental)
Access to a shared vehicle
Opportunities for spiritual formation (including retreats and days of reflection).
Although our AmeriCorps grant is not guaranteed from year to year, most volunteers also serve concurrently as part-time AmeriCorps volunteers.
Red Cloud Indian School is Lakota Catholic K-12 school district in the Jesuit tradition.
