Repair the World is on a quest to find courageous, compassionate go-getters who are eager to commit to a year of service in their community, developing partnerships with local organizations doing great work and rallying local volunteers to do even more. Repair the World Fellows will focus on a range of issues, including education, poverty, sustainability, and hunger.
The Repair the World Fellowship is an exciting 10.5 month opportunity for Jewish young adults ages 21 to 26 who are committed to organizing communities toward meaningful volunteer projects. The Fellowship takes place in four of the most vibrant, post-industrial cities in the U.S. – Baltimore, Detroit, Philadelphia, and Pittsburgh. 2014-2015 Fellowship dates are September 3, 2014 to July 16, 2015.
You’ll be mobilizing, organizing, training, and serving alongside community volunteers and building connections with service organizations, nonprofit, and Jewish community partners. Your task will be to create meaningful, high-impact service projects that address critical needs in the areas of education, housing, hunger, and more. You and your team of Fellows will be based out of a central community hub called the Workshop, where you will plan the service projects, train volunteers, and host meetings and activities in collaboration with the community. You will also be spending a lot of time throughout the city – recruiting volunteers, serving in a range of locations, and participating in the life of the community.
