Repair the World is excited to announce a new partnership: we’re working with Global Citizen Year to give young Jews from diverse backgrounds the opportunity to participate in a “bridge year” of international service before college.

Our new collaboration builds on Repair the World’s commitment to making service a core part of the American Jewish experience and on Global Citizen Year’s leadership in global service-learning. Together, we are working to connect graduating high-school students with a chance to live and work as apprentices in Asia, Africa or Latin America, and to use their skills and passions to make a difference.

Applications to join next year’s class of GCY Fellows are currently open and prospective applicants can apply here, watch this video, or email david at globalcitizenyear dot org to learn more.

Those accepted will be eligible to apply for two scholarships of up to $5,000 in financial aid through the inaugural Repair the World Scholarship.

We’re incredibly excited about this new partnership, and look forward to providing more details soon. In the meantime, please forward this announcement to any colleagues or students you know who might be interested.
