Repair the World, a national organization working to inspire American Jews to give their time and effort to serve those in need, has announced $2.6 million in new grants to fund service-learning programs in the United States and around the world.

“Service learning has the power to deliver substantial on-the-ground impact, while strengthening the life-long civic engagement and Jewish identities of those who serve,” said Jon Rosenberg, CEO of Repair the World. “By investing in our grantees, we enable thousands of young adults to become Jewish global citizens.”

The 2010-2011 grants will support a total of 18 organizations that engage participants in full-time service for at least seven days and provide structured learning with time for reflection. Organizations receiving funding include:

In 2010, Repair the World’s focus areas include grants to strengthen and scale immersive Jewish service-learning; the development of the first comprehensive national search engine for Jewish service opportunities; the creation of a robust program of campus service partnerships; the development of the Repair the World Index, to track service-related behaviors and attitudes of Jewish young adults; and bridging the Jewish and secular service movements.
