1st Annual Ice Fishing Day

Our first annual ice fishing day was held at Center Lake in Custer State Park. It was a huge success!

"Beautiful weather, almost everyone caught a fish, some caught  4+ but were doing catch and release. The youth learned how to ice fish from the beginning (setting up fishing poles) to the end (cleaning the fish and getting them ready to go home). Overall a great time and will be doing again next year!"

These Littles have been playing Minute to Win it games, trivia, and enjoyed a snow day!

Campus Kids is a program for our Littles who are waiting for their Big Brother or Big Sister. The South Dakota School of Mines and Technology has partnered with us to provide a venue and student volunteers to help create a fun, educational, safe place for our Littles to stay engaged.  



Can you find it in your heart to help us match more children with the mentors they need and deserve?
$5 makes a difference and is a positive force for change!

One-to-one mentoring is a simple, prevention-based strategy to help our youth become resilient despite the adversity they endure. 

The need for one-to-one mentoring continues to rise and we need help supporting this growth.


Thank you to The Hair Force!
