Arizona State University Lodestar Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Innovation: Public Allies Arizona

Public Allies Arizona is an AmeriCorps program of the ASU Lodestar Center for Nonprofit Philanthropy and Innovation. Our mission is to create a just and equitable society and the diverse leadership to sustain it. We select our communities’ most promising young leaders, who commit to a rigorous and rewarding 10-month program of full-time, paid apprenticeships in Phoenix-area community organizations, as well as team service projects, and bi-weekly leadership training.

 Each year, Public Allies Arizona partners with over 20 different nonprofit organizations whose missions focus on the community needs of youth development, health and wellness, and economic opportunity. Each Ally is matched into a full-time position at one of these nonprofits focusing on creating, improving, or expanding services of these organizations.
