Our Work

The booming tech and art scene in Miami has created many new opportunities in the city, but calls attention to how vulnerable residents in underserved neighborhoods have been left behind. Repair the World Miami is building a network of amazing local nonprofits and change-makers to elevate the lives of all members of our diverse community by serving alongside them in true collaboration. 

OUR TEAM

  • Janu Mendel

  • Janu Mendel

    Executive Director, Repair the World Miami
    Janu was born and raised in Kingston, Jamaica where he had his bar-mitzvah in a sand-floored synagogue and developed his life-long love of reggae music. He completed his B.Sc. in Political Science in 2005 at the University of the West Indies. He then moved to Miami, where he worked in corporate business for seven years. Seeking something more meaningful, he found his home in Miami’s Jewish community, and realized that this was where he belonged professionally. He was recruited as an Outreach Fellow for Temple Beth Am, Miami in 2013 and now manages their young adult engagement efforts. He joins Repair from his role as Director of Engagement at University of Miami Hillel. Janu has always had a passion for engaging in service, social justice and politics, which led to his election as Head Boy in high school (yes, like in Harry Potter). Having the opportunity to take a more active role in community building makes him truly excited to be joining the team at Repair.[email protected]
