Calling all entrepreneurs and visionaries…

Repair the World is teaming up with the Bronfman Youth Fellowship in Israel (BYFI), by issuing a $10,000 matching grant to their Alumni Venture Fund (AVF). Since 2005, the AVF has provided financial support via mini-grants to more than 100 innovative projects dreamed up by BYFI alumni.

A few project highlights include:

  • Uri L’Tzedek’s Tav HaYosher: a grassroots initiative to create just working conditions in kosher restaurants.
  • Street Sights: A community newspaper written by homeless and formerly homeless individuals in Providence, Rhode Island, to build community, empower writers, and shed light on the issue of homelessness.
  • Kavod House: A residential community for Jews in the 20s and 30s in Boston, that engages in communal outreach, Jewish study, Tikkun Olam work, and activism.
  • Challah for Hunger: a national organization that engages college students in baking and selling challah, and donating profits to local charities and international relief in Sudan.
  • Urban Next Summit: A gathering in New Orleans in 2008 of young people from diverse backgrounds, discussing how to rebuild the city and establish meaningful connections between emerging and established leaders.
