Repair the World is dedicated to making deep and meaningful volunteer service a central part of Jewish life. We enable people to transform their neighborhoods, cities and lives through meaningful service experiences, rooted in Jewish values, history and heritage.
Repair the World’s signature program, Repair the World Communities, engages young adults in social change efforts in Baltimore, Detroit, Miami, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and New York City. Our NYC program, launched in 2015 and based in Central Brooklyn and now expanded into Harlem, has engaged more than 10,000 New Yorkers in meaningful service and learning. We seek to build a young Jewish community that coalesces around meaningful service through a Jewish lens and spurs deep impact on issues of social justice in the community.
The Event Specialist will be a key player in implementing Repair the World NYC’s work in Central Brooklyn. The successful candidate will be a flexible self-starter who excels at project management and building relationships with organizations and individuals, and who can speak passionately about the intersection of service, social justice and Jewish values.
This position reports to the Executive Director of Repair the World NYC. The focus of this role is primarily in Brooklyn, with some responsibilities in Harlem. The position is full-time and primarily based out of Repair’s Brooklyn workshop, with some flexibility.
