The Helpline Center has a history of connecting people with volunteer opportunities that change lives and our communities. Last year they became supporters of the Sioux 52 Mentoring Initiative which encourages everyone to consider becoming a mentor.

This week they are seeking people who want to be part of a new pilot virtual mentoring program and also to help a long list of children waiting for someone to become part of their lives.

  • School-Based Virtual Mentoring Supervisor - These positions involve you monitoring virtual mentoring sessions in three of our Sioux Falls elementary schools - Lowell, Garfield, and Hawthorne. This activity occurs over the children's lunch hours and your time commitment would be about two-and-a-half hours.
  • Lutheran Social Services/Climb Program - This program, formerly known as Big Brothers/Big Sisters of the Sioux Empire, needs people to step into mentoring positions for a long waiting list of worthy children.

Finally, this week, The Helpline Center is hoping to find groups of people who love the outdoors and our city parks.

  • Sioux Falls Parks and Recreation - This opportunity is specifically for groups like families, church, and work or company groups, civic organizations, Boy & Girl Scout troops, and more! You'll be sprucing up and beautifying our city parks. You can volunteer through the Helpline Center or directly with the city by calling (605) 367-8222.

For more information on these volunteer opportunities, and hundreds of others, call the Helpline Center at 211, or see Helpline Center online, on FacebookTwitterInstagram, and Linkedin.
