The need on the Rosebud Reservation is very high. Todd County, comprising the reservation, is the second poorest county in the nation. Unemployment is over 80 percent. About 76 percent of the employed labor force on the reservation lives below the poverty level. Labor assistance is our primary community service project. Home repair and painting is a constant need. If you are experienced in electrical and plumbing work, you’ll employ your skills on a variety of home projects. Splitting and delivering firewood is an important project – and one that nearly all ages can work on.
No previous experience is necessary. A group of native crew leaders will work with and direct you and your teammates. All the while, you learn about and from people who strive to improve the quality of life for children and families.
