Overview of the Repair the World Service Corps

Repair the World’s service corps, now in its second year, mobilizes adults ages 18-29 to invest both in their communities and themselves through the lens of Jewish values.

In 11 cities around the country, service corps cohorts will be supervised by Repair the World staff to integrate the themes of the program in a small group setting. corps members are eligible for an $1,000 stipend at the completion of the program, with additional equity funding available.
