If you are or have been thinking about joining Public Allies, these would be great opportunities for you to come and get a sense of what it is like to be an Ally.

Friday June 17th: Team Service Project (TSP) Showcase
1PM - 5PM at the Main Library Downtown, 3rd Floor Conference Room
- Since September, the Allies have been hard at work in three teams working on three major TSP's. Each team will present what they did and what they learned from the process. Come support Kinsey's team, Team Sidetracked, as they present on the natural playground they built for Cincinnati Union Bethel.
Friday June 24th: Presentation of Learning (POL)
11:15AM at the Theodore M. Berry Head Start Center, 880 W. Court St.
