MLK Service at Urban Greenworks with JNF

Come join us in partnership with Jewish National fund at Urban GreenWorks! 


Urban GreenWorks (UGW) is a Miami-based not-for-profit organization that exists to restore the economic, physical, and social health of under-served communities.UGW creates programs for communities plagued by poor access to fresh food, blighted and neglected open space, low urban tree cover, and an under-employed population of young adults.


In light of MLK weekend, the biggest service weekend in the country, and Tu Bishvat, the Jewish festival of the trees, we will be in Cerasee Farm, tending to the garden that creates food access for Liberty City’s community. 


We can’t wait to see you there! Grab your spot today!

MLK Day of Service with City Year 1/21

From Cityyear.org


As a tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy of service to others, City Year considers Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day as a day ‘on’, not ‘off’. During the annual national observance, City Year mobilizes its AmeriCorps members and thousands of volunteers for a day of service in communities across the nation.


In coordination with local partners, City Year AmeriCorps members and volunteers engage in service projects that include painting schools, beautifying neighborhoods and parks, serving in soup kitchens, supporting senior citizens, and running educational activities for children.


Because City Year is an education nonprofit, most of our MLK Service Day projects involve helping turn schools into more engaging, educational and vibrant places for students to learn and play. We know that one of Dr. King’s most compelling visions was that of a Beloved Community – a community in which people of different backgrounds recognize that we are all interconnected and that our individual well-being is inextricably linked to the well-being of others. City Year believes serving our communities on Martin Luther King Jr. Day is one of the best ways to honor this vision.

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.

    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]
