Public Allies is a social justice organization committed to changing the face and practice of leadership by recruiting and training talented young leaders, with a passion for social impact, to create meaningful change in our community. Our Allies are diverse, equity-centered, innovative problem solvers, dedicated to mobilizing community assets to develop solutions to local challenges. In partnership with nonprofit partners, we deliver our nationally recognized, values-driven, results-led apprenticeship to advance our mission to create a just and equitable society and the diverse leadership to sustain it.
Public Allies Eagle Rock, a program of Eagle Rock School and Professional Development Center and a proud member of the AmeriCorps national service network, is the only residential Public Allies program; our Allies come from across the country and live and work on Eagle Rock’s residential high school campus, alongside our high school students. Eagle Rock’s mission is to implement effective and engaging practices that foster each student’s unique potential and help young people use their minds well. Eagle Rock serves adolescents who are not thriving in their current situations, for whom few positive options exist, and who are interested in taking control of their lives and learning.
Allies in classroom instructional positions have the opportunity to apply for and participate in a teaching licensure program, fully paid for by Eagle Rock.
