Repair the World mobilizes Jews and their communities to take action to pursue a just world. We believe that service in support of social change is vital to a flourishing Jewish community and an inspired Jewish life. By 2030, Repair will inspire and catalyze one million acts of service towards repairing the world.
Repair is building a Jewish service movement that mobilizes young adults to serve in their communities, catalyzes service through deep partnerships within Jewish communal organizations, and inspires people to take action through time-bound thematic national service campaigns, digital engagement, and service.
Repair the World is seeking a passionate and experienced leader to serve as its Director of Campaigns. Repair’s campaigns are specific, time-bound calls to action that mobilize Jews and their communities to serve and learn around an issue area, grounded in Jewish wisdom. For example this past year one of our campaigns led to the creation of the Vaccine Appointment Network, providing support for over 20,000 individuals seeking the vaccine. Campaigns activate thousands of young Jews and their communities at the intersection of service learning, digital engagement, and collective action. The Director of Campaigns reports to the Chief Program Officer.
Campaigns are successful when they:
- Inspire young Jews and their communities to serve and learn around urgent needs rooted in justice
- Integrate service with both Jewish and contextual learning as well as provide opportunities for reflection
- Expand our digital reach to new audiences and leverage alumni engagement through our Campaign Ambassadors program
- Serve as potential entry points to deeper engagement with Repair, service, and campaign issues for those inclined to do so
The Director of Campaigns will oversee the strategic direction of campaigns from building the vision and purpose to launching, implementing, and analyzing the overall success.
Oversee a series of national time-bound service campaigns that engage people in service to address key issue areas in our society today. This includes mobilizing in-person service, catalyzing our program partners, and inspiring digital engagement.
