One week of PeerCorps Summer costs $150. We want to ensure that the cost is not prohibitive to any potential families and so if you have any questions regarding payment and/or are in need of financial assistance please email Rachel Fine.

Please pay through a donation here. Under designation, please write “PeerCorps Detroit Summer Payment.”

This year we will be partnering with Eastern Market on their Farmstand program, Oakland Avenue Urban Farm on gardening, as well as a few days painting murals and helping out at our partner site, Kibbutz Detropia!

The summer is an opportunity to do PeerCorps in a more concentrated way. Rather than serving with one partner site for the cycle, there is a variety of different sites in any given week. Plus the weather is better!
