Wexner Service Corps
A Year-Long Service-Learning Program for HS Students
The application for 2017-2018 is now CLOSED!
Designed to inspire and unite Columbus-area Jewish teens to engage in service learning, The Wexner Foundation invites students currently in 10th and 11th grade (those going into 11th and 12th grades in the 2017-2018 academic year) to apply for participation in the Wexner Service Corps (WSC), beginning with a trip to Pittsburgh (June 4-9, 2017), followed by year-round service in Columbus.
This year the Wexner Service Corps will visit Pittsburgh June 4-9, 2017 in partnership with Repair the World. In recent years, Pittsburgh has remade itself into a leader in the fields of technology, medicine, and education. Simultaneous to this growth and development, Pittsburgh has experienced significant gentrification and rising inequality. The city now faces the challenges of combating education disparity and food injustice in order to ensure more equitable and healthy communities. Volunteers in Pittsburgh provide critical support and services to non-profits and other organizations already doing excellent work on a wide variety of local and community causes. The group will be guided through a sophisticated and intensive curriculum relating their work to Jewish thought and texts. Through the generosity of Leslie and Abigail Wexner and The Wexner Foundation, all expenses will be paid.
