With Lily Brent

As the director of Repair the World Atlanta, Lily engages young adults in meaningful volunteer services with local partners, through critical self-reflection, study of a Jewish approach to social justice and strengthening alliances among diverse communities. Prior to joining Repair the World, Lily’s professional life focused on creating the conditions for youth to reach their full potential in the U.S. and abroad. She has provided psychosocial support to adolescents in such diverse settings as a New York City public school and outpatient psychiatric clinic, a D.C. mentoring program for kids in foster care, and the Agahozo Shalom Youth Village in Rwanda. She has worked on adolescent sexual/reproductive health & rights in Niger and Bangladesh, and ensuring that women and youth can access the benefits of development projects in Benin, Mongolia and Nepal. Lily also spent three years working to reform criminal justice policy and practice in Arkansas, Illinois, New York, Oklahoma and Virginia. Lily is a graduate of the Princeton public schools as well as Oberlin College and Columbia University. She is the proud daughter of Sally Steinberg and Dan Brent.
