Repair the World Miami was founded in 2017 to mobilize the growing wave of millennials coming to our city in active and ongoing volunteer work. Repair’s unique combination of peer-to-peer engagement, educational programs, and community-based service opportunities support local nonprofits to create authentic and impactful volunteering and education opportunities for those participants.
Repair the World is designed to contribute to and enhance the work of local organizations to expand their impact. With a dedicated Director for each city, a team of full time fellows, and space to collaborate (Workshop), Repair partners with local organizations to recruit the volunteers needed to address each city’s most pressing issues. Whether it’s tackling education inequality in Liberty City or food justice in Overtown, each Repair program works to build a permanent network of volunteers that can give the sustained effort needed to see change through. Repair the World Miami has partnered with the Jewish Volunteer Center of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation to launch a Repair site in Miami.

The Repair the World Fellowship
Repair the World couldn’t do its work without the help of its dedicated fellows. These volunteer rockstars commit to an entire year of service in their communities, developing partnerships with local organizations doing great work and rallying local volunteers to help them do even more.
Hands On Volunteering
Our fellows serve in partnership with local nonprofits, including: Miami Children's Initiative, Lotus House, Health in the Hood, Miami Rescue Mission, and Guitars over Guns to name a few. Through these partnerships, we recruit volunteers to do ongoing direct service to these organizations and more.
We host ongoing events throughout the year to highlight issues our city is facing to give crucial context to our volunteer base. These programs allow us to deliver a high-level, meaningful experience for the volunteers so they can truly understand why and how they are contributing to their local city.
