Short-Term Service

Each year, thousands of visitors travel to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation to work alongside our Lakota men and women. Together, their collaboration is nothing short of inspiring as they learn from and share with one another a multitude of talents and gifts.

Red Cloud Indian School is unable to offer day- and weeklong volunteer immersion experiences, but there are a number of wonderful organizations on the reservation that do. Often times, these experiences include a visit to our Pine Ridge and Porcupine campuses, or to one of our six Catholic churches spread across our sacred lands.


Re-Member brings more than 1,200 volunteers to Pine Ridge each year for weeklong working vacations, with an emphasis on cultural exchange. You will help with various projects across the reservation while learning about the history of the Lakota people. Visit
