|Mission||Public Allies Connecticut has partnered with nonprofit organizations across Bridgeport, New Haven and Hartford to create New Leaders for New Times. We are grounded in the conviction that everyone can lead; Public Allies is changing the face and practice of leadership in communities across the country by demonstrating our belief that lasting social change results when citizens of all backgrounds step up, take responsibility, and work together.|
As a Public Ally, you might be teaching environmental education to kids, finding housing for refugees, running an after school program, researching public policy, or serving your community in one of so many other ways! Our Allies change their lives and our community through a rigorous 10-month AmeriCorps program that combines full-time, paid apprenticeships with intensive skills training, active community-building projects, personalized coaching, and critical reflection. You'll serve 4 days per week at your nonprofit placement, and attend trainings geared toward giving you the knowledge and skills you'll need to pursue a nonprofit career.
HOSTING a Public Ally is a cost-effective way for a nonprofit organization to build its capacity and connect with other nonprofits in the community while investing in the development of a young leader.
