Public Allies

Public Allies is national organization whose local branch has helped many RAPPers become leaders for the future in its twelve years in Cincinnati. I hope that we continue to have much sharing of people between our organizations.

Current RAPPer Wil has been great about letting folks know about the opportunity Public Allies (PA) affords its volunteers. Below is information he sent to our group about PA:

PA is a ten-month AmeriCorps program that pairs up diverse, young leaders with local nonprofits. An individual's nonprofit work runs from Mon-Thurs, while Fridays are reserved for learning sessions, leadership development, and group community service. More or less. I did PA, and it was probably the best decision I've ever made.

If you are not interested in Public Allies or will not be able to do the program, you still may be able to help me out:

-by forwarding this information to friends or family who may be interested -by arranging for a PA person to give a short recruitment pitch at your student group meeting (if appropriate, willing, etc.)

-by keeping the program in mind when you graduate

Application deadline is April 30th, program starts September 2010.

Information sessions will be held at the BRIDGES offices, 430 Reading Road, Fourth Floor at 6:30 pm on the following dates:
Feb 24
March 10 & 24
April 1 & 2
