Mission Statement

Repair the World was founded in 2009 with a mission of making service a defining feature of North American Jewish life. This fall, we're launching Repair Communities, a new initiative to realize that vision on a local level in Baltimore, Detroit, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, with Brooklyn being added this coming spring. In each of these cities, Repair the World is building partnerships and resources that will enable more young adults and others to volunteer more frequently and with greater impact.

Repair Communities is driven by authentic local engagement and a deep commitment to creating meaningful service opportunities that meet real needs. By placing a City Director and a cohort of full-time fellows in each pilot city, Repair Communities will be able to expand the capacity of the local service partners and recruit the volunteers needed to make positive impact. Each community will also be home to a storefront Repair the World hub (in Pittsburgh, it's on Broad Street), which will act as the physical home for the initiative, and the inclusivity it seeks to model.

Description
