Who We Are
Public Allies Cincinnati is a proud member of the AmeriCorps national service network. We’re changing the face and practice of leadership in Cincinnati since 1998.


About Us
At Public Allies Cincinnati, we believe changing times call for a new kind of leadership. Through our AmeriCorps program, we train young leaders ("Allies") who are diverse and passionate social change makers that support community projects in partnership with hundreds of local nonprofit organizations.

Our Allies change their lives and our community through a rigorous AmeriCorps program that combines full-time, paid apprenticeships in nonprofits with intensive skills training, active community-building projects, personalized coaching, and critical reflection. We provide all of this through a nationally recognized approach that's rooted in a practice of values.

Since 1998, Public Allies Cincinnati has graduated hundreds of Allies and partnered with about a hundred community organizations. Public Allies Cincinnati has aligned itself with the Bold Goals for our region, specifically the income measurement that seeks to have 90% of area residents gainfully employed by 2020.
