Get Involved with Repair!

"Folks who know how to fix things, getting together to help folks who don't, bringing broken things back to life."

 

 

We’re very happy to support several repair initiatives in The East Bay.
All initiatives rely on volunteers to help host, fix and organize.


I. Two Community Repair Event formats:

Fixit Clinics at Berkeley Public Library and beyond,

Basics on Volunteering for Community Repair Events

FIXERS

If you're handy with repairs and like to share what you know, come volunteer! 
All skills are highly valued!
Clothing, mechanics, electronics, furniture, appliances, lamps, bikes, toys, etc. etc. ... pretty much anything that can break and be brought through the door.

Organizing

There's all kinds of possibility on the organizing front.  Let us know what you're interested in.

HOSPITALITY & LOGISTICS

Fixit Clinics and Repair Cafés need help organizing, hosting, and managing the flow of people and repair projects. If you'd like to help out, come volunteer!


"If It's Broke,
Fix It!"
