Apply for a Repair the World Alternative Break Micro Grant by Nov 2!

We believe that Alternative Break programs offer an unparalleled opportunity for immersive service that builds community and leadership while making a difference. So we have found a way to help dedicated people and groups make them happen!

Repair the World is offering micro-grants to support new and long-standing Alternative Break experiences for North American young adults. Micro-grant award amounts will range from $1,000-$5,000 and will vary depending on the number of program participants, program location, emphasis on post-program engagement and other factors.

Think your Alternative Break program fits the bill? Apply by November 2 and you might just have the best break ever!*

Find out more about the many ways Repair the World fosters high quality Alternative Break programs (and how you can get involved!) here.

*Please note that these micro grants are applicable to non-Hillel related programs. Hillel campuses can apply for separate funding, and should apply directly through Hillel International.
