Get Involved with Repair!
In addition to repairing your own things and helping friends and family with their broken stuff, please consider engaging with the community to promote repair.
We facilitate involvement in three areas:
Community Repair Events
Repair in the Schools
Details on each follow below.
The volunteer community is a terrific group, doing great work, having fun.
Let us know about you using the form below. We’ll pass your information on to event organizers Fixit Clinic and Transition Berkeley so they can contact you directly. And we’ll let you know about upcoming events.
It's great to have you!
Basics on Volunteering for Community Repair EventS:
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.
Planning, publicity, coordinating — there's all kinds of possibility on the organizing front.
HOSPITALITY & LOGISTICS
Fixit Clinics and Repair Cafés need help with registration, the café, and managing the flow of volunteers, people and repair projects.
2. Volunteer in the Schools:
Teachers are developing programs that need skilled volunteers.

Citizen involvement is essential to advancing responsible Repair policy and legislation.
→ ALERT: Right to Repair legislation is under consideration on April 9, 2019 in Sacramento.
We urge all citizens to make their voices heard.
