Public Allies CT is developing leaders for the non-profit sector and developing new ways to drive impact in our communities. Our mission is to create a just and equitable society and the diverse leadership to sustain it. We do this through our signature AmeriCorps program, where diverse cohorts of Allies are building capacity at 25 non-profit organizations across the state and leaving a meaningful legacy to enhance their impact.
RYASAP’s Public Allies change their lives and the community through a rigorous AmeriCorps public service program that combines full-time, paid apprenticeships in nonprofits with intensive skills and leadership training, active community-building projects, personalized coaching and critical reflection. Allies provide all of this through a nationally recognized approach that’s rooted in the program’s core values: collaboration, integrity, focus on assets, diversity and inclusion, continuous learning, and innovation.
Public Allies Connecticut is intentional about recruiting young leaders whose promise and potential are too frequently overlooked, dismissed, or ignored, including young adults aging out of the foster care system; our brothers and sisters who must remake their lives following incarceration; and single mothers seeking a bridge from GED to college and career. They need – and deserve – opportunities like Public Allies to activate their full leadership potential.
