Pittsburgh

 

At Public Allies Pittsburgh, we believe changing times call for a new kind of leadership. Since 2006, we’ve worked with young leaders to impact Pittsburgh's neighborhoods. Allies are young, diverse, and passionate social change makers who support community projects in partnership with hundreds of local nonprofit organizations. Our partnership with the Coro Center for Civic Leadership enhances the depth and breath of our leadership curriculum and furthers the mission of Public Allies in strenghtening individuals, organizations and communities.

 

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.

 

Allies are diverse, talented, and passionate. We welcome all backgrounds and experience levels to apply to serve the Pittsburgh region. Public Allies strives to have an inclusive class that includes members of all communities, regardless of race, affiliation, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, or ability.
