Science Teacher–Middle School

Posted on:
Program Timing: As Soon As Possible / Location: Pine Ridge, South Dakota

We are looking for someone to join our volunteer program as a Science teacher in our Middle School. You do not have to already have a teaching license as we will help you get signed up for an alternative certification.

Red Cloud Volunteers serve as educators, teachers’ aides, and support staff at Red Cloud Indian School on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. Red Cloud Indian School is a Lakota Jesuit Catholic school system that serves approximately 500 K-12 students from the local community.

All Red Cloud Volunteers earn a class B commercial driver’s license in order to assist with school transportation needs. Volunteers also serve as coaches, mentors, and work with after-school programs.

Volunteers are part of the Red Cloud Volunteers Program, whose pillars are Justice, Community, Spirituality, and Simplicity. Volunteers live in 1 of 3 volunteer houses with 4-9 fellow volunteers and share meals and regular prayer with their community. While volunteers do not need to be Catholic or religious, all community members are asked to be open to Catholic and Lakota spiritual practice and to growth in their own spiritual walk.

Volunteers participate in monthly all-volunteer dinners, attend 3 retreats a year, committing to a habit of reflection and sharing of experience.
