PeerCorps Middle: Pittsburgh 2022 Registration

PeerCorps is Repair’s teen service-learning program. It combines service with contextual issues, reflection, and Jewish learning. PeerCorps enables Jewish middle and high schoolers of all backgrounds to build relationships with one another and engage in community-based service and learning in Pittsburgh.

This spring (January through May), PeerCorps teens will explore issues related to food justice, LGBTQ+ justice, racial justice and more, and they will engage in service with partner organizations leading this work locally.

Your Application Type
PeerCorps Middle Experience: B Mitzah age students commit to about 2 sessions per month at a grassroots service organization September-December (Fall) and/or Jan-May (Spring). Mentees work and learn alongside Mentors with built-in reflection and learning around their service issue areas. Mentees are typically between 6th and 8th grade.

Kesher Experience: Similar to the mentee experience, but for teens looking for a bridge experience in-between being a Mentor and a Mentee. Kesher students are typically in 9th grade.

PeerCorps Middle: Cycle Registration

PeerCorps Middle is structured around the academic year with a fall and spring cycle that build upon each other. Please indicate which cycles you can join us for below. We encourage you to join us for the full year experience!

Note: The Spring cycle may look different than the fall based upon our ability to gather in person and go to volunteer sites. For this reason, the finalized Spring cycle schedule will be shared out over the winter.

Wrapping Up

We are so excited that you or your family is participating in Repair the World Pittsburgh's PeerCorps programming. We are grateful for your support and your family's desire to serve.

To ensure the sustainability of the program, we ask all of our families to make a payment per cycle of $125. If you child is signing up for the entire year, this would be a $250 payment.

For those with more resources, we ask for you to consider giving more so as to make possible the participation of a child from a family who otherwise would not be able to. 

For those for whom the full fee represents a financial hardship, please select the payment option (either partial or full scholarship) that works for your family.

Optional Donation
We are so excited to be able to waive our standard program fee and offer you/your child(ren) this virtual version of our PeerCorps program for free. 

For those who are still interested in providing financial support to this transformative youth program, we encourage you to do so and are incredibly grateful for your support. If you so choose, you may select your donation amount below.
