Build Capacity at your Nonprofit with Public Allies Connecticut!

Have you been looking to boost capacity at your organization? Are you interested in becoming an Ally host site for the 2014-2015 year? Read on!

Greetings!


We have great news: Public Allies Connecticut is currently accepting partner applications for our 11th class of Allies.
 
As a partner, your organization will benefit from the talents, experiences, and energy of our thoughtfully recruited AmeriCorps members as they work to add value and build capacity for the important work you are doing.  Learn more at PublicAllies.org and begin the partnership process by contacting our New Haven Program Manager, Emily Gallagher at emilyg@publicallies.org

The Basics 
Public Allies is changing the face and practice of leadership by demonstrating the conviction that everyone can lead, and that lasting social change results when citizens of all backgrounds step up, take responsibility, and work together. Public Allies recruits talented and diverse young adults who have a passion to make a difference and helps them turn that passion into a career working for community and social change. Public Allies CT has partnered with over 130 non profit organizations across the state and has graduated more than 200 Allies from our program.  Through our signature leadership development program, Public Allies CT leverages the skills and talents of emerging leaders to address capacity needs in non-profit organizations across the state.  Allies work with partner organizations for 10 months, 4 days per week, on a capacity building objective.  Allies work with Public Allies CT staff and community trainers 1 day per week to develop their technical and adaptive leadership skills.  Allies apply this learning to enhance their effectiveness as apprentices and as professionals after their term of service is complete.

Matches are made based upon excitement that is mutually shared between the partner organization, the Ally, and Public Allies CT.  We will not force a match that will not support the Ally's growth and learning or the partner organization's goals and objectives.

This is an exciting time as we look forward to continuing thriving partnerships, learning more about your organizations, and finding meaningful ways to partner and help CT communities reach their fullest potential.

To learn more, email Emily at emilyg@publicallies.org today! Thanks!
