Everyday Hero: Mentor at a local school

In LSS' largest youth mentoring program, Everyday Hero volunteers spend one hour per week with an elementary, middle or high school student at the school. Mentors and students spend time doing a variety of activities together, including:

  • playing board games
  • reading a book
  • playing basketball
  • eating lunch together
  • simply sitting and talking

Everyday Heroes offers a flexible volunteer option. With schools located in nearly every neighborhood, mentors can select a location that is best for them. Matches meet during the school lunch hour. This varies from school to school, but it’s generally a 30 to 45 minute block of time between 11am and 1pm.

School counselors select a young person who can use extra one-to-one attention from a caring adult role model. Counselors are responsible for matching students with an Everyday Hero mentor.

Everyday Heroes mentors can volunteer in the following school districts: Sioux Falls, Baltic, Brandon Valley, Canton, Dell Rapids, Flandreau, Garretson, Harrisburg, Lennox, Tea Area, Tri-Valley and West Central.
