Program Overview (from the program website):

Through our signature AmeriCorps program, Public Allies identifies talented young adults from diverse and under-represented backgrounds who have a passion to make a difference, and helps them turn that passion into a viable career path. Allies become leaders who can engage and unite people of all backgrounds, lead effective projects and organizations, and commit long-term to creating a more just society with opportunity for all.

Here's what our 10-month-long AmeriCorps program offers:

Full-time paid apprenticeships in local nonprofit organizations, where apprentices:

- Serve four days per week.
- Create, improve and expand services that address diverse issues such as youth development, education, public health, economic development, the arts and the environment.
- Earn a monthly stipend of $1,300 to $1,800.
- Receive health care, child care, student loan deferment, and a post-service education award of $5,550.

A rigorous leadership development curriculum delivered by community leaders, practitioners and educators. This includes:

- Intensive weekly skill training and leadership development seminars.
- Critical feedback, reflection, and personal coaching toward individual performance and professional goals.
- Community building and team projects with a diverse cohort of peers.
- Presentations of learning at the end of the year to demonstrate how each Ally met the learning outcomes of the program.
