Public Allies is a national movement whose mission it is to create a just and equitable society and the diverse leadership to sustain in.
We are changing the face and the practice of leadership in 23 communities across the U.S. by cultivating talented, diverse, “home-grown” leaders – we call them “Allies” -- and preparing them for lives and careers devoted to social change.
The vast majority of Allies are from the communities in which they serve and have a passion for, and connection to, their communities -- qualities which make them outstanding and necessary change agents.
Since 1998, Public Allies Cincinnati has had more than 400 alumni who have continued on to careers in nonprofit, public and private sectors, as well as those who continued their education due in large part to the $5,730 Education Award received for their service.
Our current class of Allies are working in 21 nonprofit organizations across Greater Cincinnati. They receive 21st century skills training, and are implementing community-based projects in Avondale, Evanston, and West End neighborhoods.
Your donation will support sustainability of these projects, and provide resources for increased professional development.
