• Public Allies does an exceptional job finding and developing talented and mission-driven individuals. I think the Public Allies experience is invaluable to the participants… This was by far the best partnership model and most comprehensive support for a program participant.

    –Bruce Bunce, West Contra Costa Public Education Fund (Silicon Valley/San Francisco)
  • Our Ally was from the community we serve and mirrored our patient population. This was beneficial from an outreach perspective because she was able to lend her personal life experiences to the position and identify more appropriate outreach opportunities.

    –Sarah Andritsch, Progressive Community Health Centers (Milwaukee)
  • Our Ally reflected a similar background (Latino, low-income) to our student population, and thus was an influential and impactful role model for our kids who face struggles every day in their lives.

    –Sarah Woodward, Mural Music and Arts Program, (Silicon Valley/San Francisco)
  • I had the opportunity to supervise an additional AmeriCorps member this year and by far, Public Allies leads the sector in recruitment, placement, and training of Allies.

    –Karla Robles, Be a Leader Foundation (Arizona)
  • I think being involved with Public Allies helps us as an organization to think more about our ways of doing business and how they could be improved.

    –Daniel Ritchey, New Mexico Association for the Education of Young Children (New Mexico)
  • We partner with Public Allies because of its focus on leadership, collaboration, continuous learning, inclusion, integrity, and its focus on community assets.

    –Maria Buchanan, Family Bridges (Chicago)
  • Being part of the Public Allies program was very beneficial for our organization because we learned from the training our AmeriCorps Ally took part in and we connected with other organizations.

    –Stacy Robinson, Peace Learning Center (Indianapolis)
  • Public Allies is very centered on community development. Just sitting in on a training or seminar shapes my outlook on how I approach my job on a daily basis.

    –Gina Horner, Girl Scouts of Western Ohio (Cincinnati)
