Work with Repair the World

Since its founding in 2009, Repair the World has sought to elevate meaningful service as a defining value and priority in Jewish communal life. We believe in service completed in deep partnership with the community and rooted in learning about the broader social issues affecting our communities.

We consult with a range of organizations to build their capacity to design and implement effective Jewish service learning programs. A few examples of consulting projects include:

ORGANIZATIONAL ASSESSMENT

How is your organization currently utilizing and/or managing volunteers? Is volunteer service meeting a high priority community need? Are volunteers effective?  Is the service experience meaningful? Whether your program is new or looking to make some changes, an organizational assessment will help you determine where you are and where you want to go.

VOLUNTEER MANAGEMENT PLAN

We can assist you with forming a plan for recruiting, managing, and retaining volunteers, as well as incorporating Jewish and social issue learning.

BUILDING COMMUNITY SERVICE PARTNERSHIPS

At Repair the World we believe volunteer projects should be rooted in a respectful, mutually beneficial partnership with an organization that has deep ties and strong relationships in the community. We can work with you to plan and strengthen these partnerships to create a more meaningful, impactful service learning program.

SERVICE LEARNING STRATEGIC PLAN

We will work with you to create a comprehensive plan for your service learning program, which includes a vision, goals, concrete action steps, and evaluation concepts.
