Repair the World Fellows will focus on two issue areas: education justice and food justice.

A sample food justice Fellow could be working with an urban farming organization to maintain a community garden, and recruit volunteers to weed and clean the garden during planting season. Another Fellow might be volunteering at a soup kitchen assisting in meal prep for lunch that week and recruiting others to join them, while another Fellow might be working with an organization that bakes Challah to raise money and awareness for social justice and mobilizes volunteers to do the same.

A sample education justice Fellow might run a project recruiting and overseeing volunteers in an after school tutoring and mentoring program for students at a low-income school. Another education justice Fellow might run a bike building and repair class for local kids, recruiting community members to teach, while another Fellow might do GED tutoring and run a book club for homeless women and engaging others to join them.

*In many of our cities, Fellows have the opportunity to serve with both food and education partners.

* As a Note: We do not judge an application by video quality or an ability to edit etc... We are happy to accept someone speaking into their smart phone or a camera just as much as someone who wants to create an edit video. This is just an opportunity for our Fellows to share parts of themselves outside of writing.
