A Day in the Life: Abby Rubin on Moishe House and Being a Detroit Fellow

Curious what it means to be a Repair the World fellow? Here’s former Detroit fellow (and current partner at Detroit Moishe House), Abby Rubin’s take in an interview conducted by Andrew Weiner.

Tell me a little about yourself?
So my name is Abby Rubin. I grew up in Cleveland. I graduated from the University of Michigan in 2013 with a degree in Organizational Studies, which means I learned how to make organizations run more efficiently and effectively, and just generally make them better. I was a Repair the World fellow last year doing education justice and fell in love with after-school programming,and the city of Detroit. Now I live in Midtown in the Detroit City Moishe House and work for Arts and Scraps, which is an amazing art and science education non-profit and I sell bracelets on Etsy!

Crazy (But Good) Way To Spend Spring Break

A group of students from the University of Michigan are spending their spring break renovating an eighty-eight year old bowling alley at the “Latino Mission Society” center in Southwest Detroit.

It’s part of a community project to provide a safe recreational area for kids in the neighborhood to hang after school as well as a location for them to do their homework.

Our Jorge Avellan caught up with the college students today and has their story.
