  • Lily Brent

    Director, Repair the World Atlanta
    Lily Brent is a writer and social worker whose curiosity and commitment to service catalyzed a career in international development, spanning six countries over the last eight years. But her search for the nuanced, every day work of community-led social justice has brought her to Repair the World. As the founding director for Repair the World Atlanta, she is thrilled to join other young Jews in critical self-reflection, study, volunteering with local partners, and strengthening alliances among diverse communities. Lily’s professional life has focused on creating the conditions for youth to reach their full potential in the U.S. and abroad.  She has provided psychosocial support to adolescents in such diverse settings as a New York City public school and outpatient psychiatric clinic, a D.C. mentoring program for kids in foster care, and the Agahozo Shalom Youth Village in Rwanda. She has worked on adolescent sexual/reproductive health & rights in Niger and Bangladesh, and ensuring that women and youth can access the benefits of development projects in Benin, Mongolia and Nepal. Lily also spent three years working to reform criminal justice policy and practice in Arkansas, Oklahoma and Virginia. In her rare spare time, Lily can be found reading and writing fiction, failing at arts and crafts projects, cooking the same chickpea recipe over and over, or playing cards.[email protected]

      Cecelia is a graduate of Georgia College and State University where she studied Psychological Science. Prior to Repair, Cecelia worked at the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta where she built community among young Jewish adults participating on Birthright Israel trips. Building upon the community she created in Israel, Cecelia worked to sustain the connections when participants returned to Atlanta. She provided opportunities for alumni to create their own Jewish spaces and take leadership roles in the community, something Cecelia is looking forward to doing work as a Repair Fellow.
