Mentoring Services

School-Based Mentor Program

"Those of us involved in the Everyday Heroes campaign believe the true worth of a community is measured in how it invests in the lives of its children. We believe a city blessed with our good fortune ought to provide a mentor to every single student who needs one."
- Randell Beck, Mentor

LSS Mentoring Services matches volunteer mentors with students in 11 Sioux Falls area school districts. Volunteers meet for one hour per week with the goal to empower youth to succeed by establishing trusting relationships with adult volunteers. Mentors have a significant impact on youth by providing guidance and developing consistent, long-term friendships. LSS operates two distinct programs.
