What is PeerCorps?

PeerCorps is a program inviting Jewish teens, b’nai mitzvah students and their families from all denominations to build deep relationships with one another and community-based work in Detroit.

Over the course of the school year, B'nai Mitzvah Mentees work and learn alongside Mentors Mentors at designated service sites in Detroit. 

Our Jewish Teen Mentors begin with a Gesher Week at the end of August. This immersive week of living, working and exploring together in Detroit provides an opportunity for the Mentors to develop self-awareness, mentorship skills, critical thinking, and to deepen their understanding of Tzedek through connecting Jewish values to learning about self and society.
