Are you in your 20’s or 30’s and looking to engage in meaningful service and connect with the Jewish young adult community in Baltimore? Look no further than Repair the World! Repair the World is a national organization that is working in partnership with Jewish Volunteer Connection (JVC) to engage millennials in hands on volunteering and learning about social justice issues.

OUR STAFF:

diana goldsmithDiana Goldsmith, Repair the World Associate

Diana was born and raised in Baltimore and has been involved in the Jewish community since a young age. She has had a love for volunteering and service due largely to the volunteer opportunities she took part in as a child in Baltimore. She recently graduated from Towson University with BA degrees in International Studies and Acting. At Towson she was extremely active in the university’s chapter of Students Helping Honduras, as well as in the university’s Honors College, serving as a Student Director and founding the Kiva Initiative of Towson. While at Towson she studied abroad in Costa Rica at the International Center for Development Studies, on the Human Rights and Development track, followed by working at a microfinance corporation in Ecuador for a month. Through these experiences she became passionate about pursuing tzedek (justice) for all people, and serving in the most ethical and sustainable ways possible. She is excited to instill a love of Judaism and service in the Baltimore communities she will serve with Repair the World!
