Today's young Americans are inheriting some of our country's greatest challenges but, too often, promising young people who want to make a difference in their communities lack the resources, support, and confidence to do so. Public Allies recruits leaders who are often overlooked: young men and women of color (ages 18-30) from low-income or underserved communities in the DC area. Through the AmeriCorps Ally Program, this diverse group of young adults engages in 10 months of leadership training, mentorship, peer support, and full-time, paid apprenticeships at local nonprofits. The Pathways program offers a series of trainings, activities, and supports to help the Allies successfully transition to careers, higher education, and continued service. With nearly 90% of Public Allies’ alumni (8,000 nationally, 300 locally) pursuing careers in public service, your support transforms the trajectory of young lives … and advances the common good.
