LSS Climb: Mentoring Youth in the Community

Climb, previously known as Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sioux Empire, matches volunteer mentors with children ages 7 to 14 and meet in the community during evening and weekend hours (or weekday hours when school is not in session). Matches are supported by an LSS case manager who works to ensure a successful experience for all.

Children can start meeting with a Climb mentor after they turn 7 years old, and must be under the age of 14 to enroll as a new participant. Climb matches meet for four hours per month in the community for at least one year. To reduce the cost of volunteering, LSS provides an activity card that offers discounts to program participants and hosts monthly events that all matches are invited to attend. All volunteers receive training prior to meeting with their student, and plenty of support from the beginning as they help a child climb to reach their fullest potential!
