Repair the World announces Global Citizen Year scholarships

Repair the World is excited to announce a new partnership: we’re working with Global Citizen Year to give young Jews from diverse backgrounds the opportunity to participate in a “bridge year” of international service before college.

Our new collaboration builds on Repair the World’s commitment to making service a core part of the American Jewish experience and on Global Citizen Year’s leadership in global service-learning. Together, we are working to connect graduating high-school students with a chance to live and work as apprentices in Asia, Africa or Latin America, and to use their skills and passions to make a difference.
