Public Allies is a social justice organization committed to changing the face and practice of leadership by recruiting and training talented emerging 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.
Unique to Public Allies Pittsburgh are our Pathways Speaker Series and Executive Ally Program:
Pathways Speaker Series: Each spring, we invite leaders from a variety of issue areas and sectors in to discuss their leadership journey with participants. Speakers range across sectors and industries while highlighting Public Allies and CORO Alumni. They present and discuss what has influenced their development as leaders, answer questions and offer counsel. All offer the opportunity for Allies to learn, reflect and network!
Second Year Ally Program: We offer a second year program that focuses on nonprofit management and capacity building. During the program, Second Year Allies dive deep into the roles and functions of non-profit organizations and examine organizations working in their areas of interest. Second Year Allies also serve as project managers for days of service.
To create a just and equitable society and the diverse leadership to sustain it.
