Repair the World is dedicated to making deep and meaningful volunteer service a central part of Jewish life. We enable people to transform their neighborhoods, cities and lives through service experiences rooted in Jewish values, history and heritage.
Repair the World’s signature program, Repair the World Communities, engages young adults in social change around education and food justice in neighborhoods in Baltimore, Detroit, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and New York City. In most communities, an Executive Director supports a cohort of Fellows (ages 21-26) who make a yearlong service commitment to serving with Repair the World.
During this year, Repair’s Fellows work closely with three audiences: they use peer-to-peer outreach and recruitment to engage thousands of other young adults in volunteering and learning, they support local nonprofits to create authentic and impactful volunteering and education opportunities for those participants, and they partner with local Jewish organizations with experience or aspirations in driving meaningful service and in supporting young Jewish adults where they are in their Jewishness and in their social impact aspirations. Repair the World Detroit’s fourth cohort of Fellows and Repair’s Teen Engagement Associate are building a young Jewish community in Detroit that coalesces around substantive service through a Jewish lens and spurs deep impact on issues of social justice in the community.
In addition to young adult programming, Repair the World Detroit oversees PeerCorps, which activates Jewish teens to engage b’nai mitzvah students in volunteering, and partners with a diverse group of secular, faith-based and interfaith partners.
The Executive Director of Repair the World Detroit will oversee the implementation and growth of this successful and dynamic site. This leader will be passionate about the intersection of Judaism and service, and deeply committed to maintaining and building community collaborations and fostering an environment of empowerment.
The Executive Director will supervise two staff –a Teen Engagement Associate and part-time Workshop Coordinator–and a cohort of 5-6 Repair the World Fellows, beginning in August 2017.
This position reports to Repair’s Senior Program Director, based in New York City.
