Public Allies identifies talented young adults who have a passion to make a difference and helps them turn that passion into a career. Allies become leaders who can bring people together, lead projects and organizations, and commit to creating a more just society. Our 10-month-long AmeriCorps program offers full-time, paid apprenticeships at a nonprofit organization. Each Public Allies program provides a stipend, health insurance, child care, interest-free student loan deferment, and a post-service education award of $6,195. Application deadlines vary by location.
