Front Desk Receptionist

The Rapid City Vet Center is a community-based outpatient mental health counseling center serving Veterans, Active Duty Service Members, and their families. We offer free readjustment counseling to eligible Veterans and Service Members to help them reintegrate successfully into civilian life. We are a small team who work in a great environment and love the work we are privileged to do!

The Rapid City Vet Center seeks volunteers to serve as front desk receptionists over the summer (May through the beginning of September). We need folks to greet and welcome our Veteran clients, answer phones and direct calls, and perform light clerical duties. Looking for friendly, helpful folks who want to be a part of our important and meaningful work with Veterans. This would be an opportunity for a volunteer to become well-versed in resources and benefits available to Veterans. We are hoping to find a few volunteers for front desk coverage across our business hours, so hours and days are flexible.

A prospective volunteer would need to complete a brief volunteer orientation at the Fort Meade VA Medical Center, along with privacy and confidentiality training online, prior to beginning their volunteer work. Subsequently, all volunteer hours would be at our office in downtown Rapid City.

For more information, please contact Michael Green, Office Manager, at (605) 348-0077.
