Public Allies is an amazing organization that truly changed my life. I would recommend this organization to anyone who is interested in making a difference in their community, but may not know how or does not have a community organizing background or experience working for a nonprofit. After my time with Public Allies I feel I know I have more skills and have improved the skills I already had. If you are interested in grassroots movements, leadership development, nonprofits, and/or making a change in your community--get involved with this organization. They people who run Public Allies truly believe in the mission of the organization and use it in their everyday lives--they talk the talk and walk the walk. If you or the organization you work for/with has the opportunity to partner with Public Allies--do it!

Public Allies changed my life and gave me a foundation for living my passion of serving others and working for social justice. Public Allies gave me a support system not only with staff (my first coaching experience) but also with my peers. The training Public Allies offered me was invaluable and continues to live on as a part of me. Public Allies helped me to hone my skills and is part of the reason I am the leader I am today.
