Who We Are
Public Allies Twin Cities is a program of Pillsbury United Communities, and a proud member of the AmeriCorps national service network. We're changing the face and practice of leadership in Minnessota's Twin Cities since 2010.

At Public Allies Twin Cities, we believe changing times call for a new kind of leadership. Through our AmeriCorps program, we train young leaders ("Allies") who are young, 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.
We're creating pathways for a stronger community and a lifetime of impact. A majority of Alumni continue a career in the nonprofit and public sectors, and about 95% of Alumni say they would participate again if they could. Results like these have led the Public Allies program to be recognized as a model for national service.
