Get Involved


Volunteers make up the backbone of SSI. We could not accomplish the many ministries the Lord has called us to without the steadfast dedication of our hundreds of volunteers who give so generously of their time each year! If you would like to get involved, here are a number of ways you can help throughout the year:

LEAD Summer Camp

There are many opportunities to volunteer at LEAD. You can be an expert coach for one of our many advanced tracks, role-play as a lobbyist or Chair for our mock committee meetings at the Capitol or as a witness for our Mock Trial track, drive a bus, and more! We also are in need of Chaperones (parents) and Aides-de-Camp (college-age alumni) to help staff each week of LEAD. To learn more about the roles of Chaperone and Aide-de-Camp, click here. Email for more information on other ways to help!

SSI Onsites

The Onsite program brings our week-long summer camp LEAD to schools, homeschool groups, and youth groups during the school year in a shortened 2-3 day format. The Onsite Program is available on your time frame, at your location, and customized for your group. Consider hosting an Onsite or volunteering as an expert lobbyist for a mock committee meeting.

Church Liaisons

Serve as the connection between your church and our programs! As a Church Liaison, you would help us partner with your church to bring our life-changing program to your congregation and youth. This can involving speaking at your church or small group, arranging for an SSI staff member to speak, distributing brochures and posting flyers, and more. Learn more here!
