PeerCorps High: Pittsburgh 2020-2021

PeerCorps High welcomes 9th - 12th graders who are passionate about creating a better world through service, social justice, and Jewish leadership. Participants commit to a year of programming that includes weekly activities (either in person or virtual, depending on our ability to gather!). These weekly sessions include deep learning about justice and local issues, leadership development, and meaningful volunteering to support our community during this difficult time of a global pandemic.
