ORGANIZATION: Repair the World: Pittsburgh

The Repair the World Service Corps mobilizes young adults ages 18-29 to invest both in their communities and themselves through a Jewish service-learning experience. Corps members will volunteer in-person, following CDC guidelines, with local service partners. Each city will have a cohort supervised by a local Repair the World staff member to integrate the themes of the program in a small group setting. Corps members will spend 5-10 hours per week volunteering, connecting with the Jewish community, and discussing foundational elements of social justice. All corps members are eligible for up to $1,800 for their service with the addition of applying for funding from the Economic Access Fund which is provided to corps members who have experienced injustice.

Repair the World is explicitly looking to build a cohort that reflects the multitude of identities that exists within both the American and Jewish communities. Applicants who identify as BIPOC, Jews of Color, lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and non-binary people; women; and differently-abled people are encouraged to apply. The only requirements to apply is that you must be authorized to work in the United States and be between 18-29 years old.

Mission Statement

Repair the World mobilizes Jews and their communities to take action to pursue a just world, igniting a lifelong commitment to service. We believe service in support of social change is vital to a flourishing Jewish community and an inspired Jewish life. By 2030, Repair will inspire and catalyze one million acts of service towards repairing the world. Repair the World Communities, engages young adults in social change around education and food justice in neighborhoods in Atlanta, Baltimore, Brooklyn, Detroit, Harlem, Miami, Philadelphia, and Pittsburgh. In most communities, a City Director supports a cohort of fellows (ages 21-26) who make a year-long service commitment to Repair the World. During this year, Repair’s fellows work closely with local nonprofits to create authentic and impactful volunteering and education opportunities--and they use peer-to-peer outreach and recruitment to engage thousands of other young adults in volunteering and learning.
