Applications Open for Wexner Service Corps
Applications are now open for The Wexner Service Corps (WSC,) a year-long Jewish service-learning program for high school juniors and seniors in Columbus, Ohio. WSC, created with inspiration from Hannah Wexner, is designed to educate and unite Jewish teens through community service and connecting to their shared Jewish texts and tradition. Each year, WSC accepts 40 students from a diverse cross-section of the Jewish community. WSC participants attend a week-long service trip, followed by monthly service projects in the Columbus community.
During both the service trip and the year-round activities, WSC members study Jewish texts and contemporary sources, discuss issues related to social justice and community service and participate in experiential learning activities.
Applications will be open from Tuesday, January 22nd until Tuesday, February 12th for students currently in 10th and 11th grades, (those going into 11th and 12th grades in the 2019-2020 academic year.)
