Public Allies - An Americorps Program
Public Allies is a national movement committed to advancing social justice and equity by engaging and activating the leadership capacities of our young people.
Since 1992, we have helped thousands of underrepresented young leaders serve our country, get on successful pathways to higher education and careers, and bring communities together to work for the common good. We operate our signature AmeriCorps program in 24 communities nationwide.
We believe that communities already have the leadership they need to create lasting social change. Public Allies seeks to find and cultivate those leaders and connect them to the issues and causes that ignite their passion.
Allies serve in full-time apprenticeship positions at local nonprofits in cities across America, where they create, improve and expand services that address issues including youth development, education, public health, economic development, and the environment. In addition, Allies participate in a rigorous leadership development program in which local community leaders and experts lead workshops to build the leadership skills of Allies. Allies also participate in community building activities, contribute to team service projects, and receive individual coaching to support their professional development during their apprenticeship.
Allies are AmeriCorps members and receive a stipend and benefits for their service. Allies are paid a stipend between $1,300 and $1,800 a month (depending on the community), and they receive health care, child care, interest-free student loan deferments, and, upon successful completion of the program, up to $5,500 in an education award to pay back student loans or pay for future education.
