Our Work

Communities in Detroit are doing remarkable work to build a vibrant 21st century future after a 20th century in which the city boomed an busted at an extraordinary scale. Detroiters have seen it all — the Arsensal of Democracy, Arson City, Devil’s Night, Angel’s Night, schools that have produced Nobel Laureates and dropouts, and neighborhoods that are, at once, food deserts and the vanguard of urban agriculture. Repair the World has an amazing network of partner organizations and volunteers that come from throughout the city, region and beyond to invest their energy in Detroit.

    • Sarah Allyn

      Executive Director, Repair the World Detroit
      Sarah grew up in Metro Detroit, across the street from the elephants at the Detroit Zoo. After graduating from the University of Michigan, she moved to Chicago to join Teach For America as an early childhood educator. Family and the emerging food scene in the city brought her back home where she spent four years as the Director of Education at Temple Shir Shalom. Sarah is thrilled to be working with the many passionate people and organizations in Detroit. When she's not working, Sarah can be found jogging through her Woodbridge neighborhood or ordering the left side of the menu at the Yemen Cafe.

    • Rachel Fine

      Teen Engagement Manager
      After participating in the Repair the World Fellowship in 2014-15 and 2015-16, it was only natural for Rachel to step into a position coordinating PeerCorps, the program she helped develop during her time as a fellow. Rachel specializes in teen programming, an area of expertise stemming from her time as a Repair the World fellow and her eight years of leadership experience at Jewish wilderness camp. Previously, Rachel studied Human Development and Social Relations as well as Political Science and Spanish at Kalamazoo College. One of her most formative life experiences was studying, working and living in San Jose, Costa Rica for a year. Since she moved to Southwest Detroit in Fall 2014, she has loved immersing herself in the community through her passion for food justice, education justice, and soccer![email protected]
