If you are searching for a way to help others and be actively involved in your community then you've found your match! South Dakota ESA is one of the most caring and generous group of people who are dedicated to helping those in need, regardless of the circumstance. If there isn't a chapter in your community, consider starting your own chapter today!
Each chapter uses their meetings to educate not only their membership but also to those residing within the communities they serve. Each chapter selects their own educational theme, and members research and present their findings in their monthly meetings.
ESA International is a leadership and service organization bringing good people together to pursue programs and projects that make a positive difference locally, nationally and internationally.
