The information session will help students learn more about the Cheyenne River Reservation Service Trip.

Eagle Butte, South Dakota
$500; open to all New School students; reservations required online by Friday, April 19
For the last four years, students from across all New School divisions traveled to Eagle Butte, South Dakota for a week-long Habitat for Humanity build. Trip participants have made a significant impact in the community, helped to build two new homes, insulated the attics of houses in an entire neighborhood, and worked on other substantial energy efficient home improvements. After hours, students participated in many activities that helped them learn about the Lakota community in which they worked, such as visiting Mount Rushmore, the Badlands, and a vast buffalo ranch, and participating in a sweat lodge ceremony. This year we continue our work on the reservation by participating in weatherization and refurbishment projects on existing Habitat for Humanity homes.
Please join the New School in continuing our collaboration with the Cheyenne River Reservation to improve the local housing stock and environment. The trip costs cover all airfare, ground transportation, lodging, and most meals and activities. Sponsored by the Office of Student Development and Activities.
