PeerCorps High: Pittsburgh 2022

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.
