SALSA Serve & Learn Student Association

Volunteering today, impacting the future
  • In 1999, the Helpline Center developed SALSA, (Serve and Learn Student Association), as a way to connect youth with opportunities to serve.  Each year, SALSA connects with approximately 1,500 high school students to engage them in volunteerism, giving them the opportunity to meet new friends, explore careers, gain leadership experience, earn hours for scholarship applications and make a difference in their community.  What started out as a small number of students and a small amount of volunteer hours, has grown into the largest club in the Sioux Falls area!
SALSA Happenings
  • SALSA holds monthly meetings where students hear from non profit agencies about the needs in our community, learn about individual volunteer opportunities and complete hands on service projects. Twice a month, students also get together in large groups and go out to complete projects (called SALSA Wide Events) decided upon by the youth leadership team.
