This funding provides general support for Public Allies Connecticut, which offers a cohort of young adult “Allies” weekly leadership training and nonprofit work experience through 10-month apprenticeships. Allies help build the capacity of their host organizations, which are located primarily in the Hartford, New Haven and Bridgeport regions. They also collaborate with other Allies to conduct team service projects that benefit the residents of their region. The Public Allies program was designed to help train the next generation of nonprofit leaders and has a commitment to assist young people who are financially disadvantaged, unemployed and/or have had justice involvement.
