New York Summer Teen Service Corps 2024

Join Repair the World’s Summer Teen Service Corps: a 3 or 6 week service-learning program tailored for rising 9th through 12th graders in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Immerse yourself in a community of passionate teens committed to justice. Delve into learning about social justice issues, volunteer at local non-profits, and explore connections between identity and service. 

Repair the World mobilizes Jews and their communities to take action and pursue a just world. Teens of any or no faith are welcome to apply for and participate in the Teen Service Corps.

  • Cool speakers and field trips (transportation cost included!)
  • A close-knit community of teens from across NYC

Fee per 3-week session: $540 – $900 sliding scale 

We use a sliding scale for our program in order to create opportunities for all teens to participate in the Teen Service Corps. We ask that each family reflect on what program cost feels equitable to them. 

We do not want cost to be a barrier to participation and we are committed to working with each family to make this program accessible. We have scholarship opportunities for a select number of teens.  Please reach out to us at  [email protected] for further assistance or questions.
