Public Allies' mission is to advance new leadership to strengthen communities, nonprofits and civic participation. Public Allies is changing the face and practice of leadership in communities across the country by demonstrating our conviction that everyone can lead, and that lasting social change results when citizens of all backgrounds step up, take responsibility, and work together.
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.
