National Beta Club exists to promote academic achievement, character, service and leadership among elementary and secondary school students. It is the largest independent, non-profit, educational youth organization in the United States.
The Beta chapter at St. Joseph’s Indian School is the only recognized Beta Club in South Dakota. Since its founding in 2017, the service-oriented club has worked in the school and broader Chamberlain community to host Easter egg hunts, run car washes, donate items to the homeless and the local food pantry and assist at the Chamberlain Special Olympics. Funds raised through these activities go to meet community needs.
