We are seeking conscientious volunteers for our 2019 Hoye Wayelo ("I Am Sending A Voice") Summer Arts Immersion Intensives. The programs bring local and visiting artists from all over the globe to teach classes in Dance, Music/Music Production, Film, Visual Art, Theater, Creative Writing, and Traditional Arts. We are teaching two programs this summer:

Week 1: June 24-28, is on the Pine Ridge Indian reservation in South Dakota.
Week 2: Week 2: June 30 - July 5th is a sleep away program in the Black Hills of South Dakota.

We are currently seeking Volunteers, Teachers, and Counselors.

Volunteers work with the program in numerous capacities which include: Cabin Counselors/Supervisors, Classroom Assistants, Student Supporters, Operational and General Support.

Experienced Teachers lead classes in many of the visual, performing, literary, media, and traditional arts. Our curriculum includes: Dance, Filmmaking, Music, Music Production, Writing, Photography, Visual Art, Theater, and a full spectrum of Traditional Arts.

We are also seeking volunteers with degrees or experience in Social Work, Counseling and Psychology to provide additional support for kids.

We are seeking teachers for both Weeks 1 and 2. We are seeking general volunteers mostly for Week 2 - but may have need for a few during Week 1.

Seeking responsible, hard working, and compassionate individuals to create a safe and positive learning environment for Native kids. Cultural respect and sensitivity are a must.
