Pine Ridge // Reservation Rebuild
Inside the southwest corner of South Dakota near the Nebraska border, sits a beautiful stretch of rolling hills and endless skies known as the Pine Ridge Reservation.
Pine Ridge is one of the largest reservations in the country, but it is also one of the poorest. The people of the Lakota Sioux tribe continue to struggle with issues such as extreme poverty, unemployment, drug and alcohol abuse, and suicide.
The living conditions are dismal, but there is great hope. While in South Dakota, you will be working to rebuild the Pine Ridge Reservation. Many of the work projects include new home builds and moderate to heavy repair projects such as flooring, siding and wheel chair ramps.
In addition to construction work, you will have the opportunity to create lasting friendships with many of the Pine Ridge residents. You can also expect to learn about the Lakota Sioux tribe history and culture, and fall in love with the families and children who are the true pulse of the reservation.
On Friday, you will have the opportunity to experience the beautiful terrain by spending the day at Angostura State Reservoir.
Get ready for an exciting week of cultural immersion, great fellowship and challenging work.
