Growing Detroit Together

Still looking for an alternative Summer Break Program?

For the second summer, Growing Detroit Together will bring a cohort of fourteen volunters from Germany, the US, and beyond to Detroit. An educational program focusing on race-relations in Detroit, urban agriculture, and community-organizing will help us connect our work to larger political and social issues in Detroit and beyond.

Organized by Action Reconciliation Service for Peace:

Action Reconciliation Service for Peace (ARSP) was founded by members of the Protestant Church of Germany in 1958 as a sign of taking responsibility for the crimes the Nazis committed, particularly the Holocaust. For over 50 years ARSP has been committed to working toward reconciliation and peace, as well as fighting racism, discrimination and social exclusion. In co- operation with our project partners, volunteers develop their understanding of history and other cultures and societies, while experiencing and accepting different patterns of thought and behavior.
