About Public Allies Detroit

We are an AmeriCorps program that connects young people to a 10 month apprenticeship with a nonprofit. Our goal is to build both the capacity of an organization and the personal capacity of that young person.


Today’s Americans are the most diverse in history, and they are inheriting some of our country’s greatest challenges. Racial and socioeconomic barriers to meaningful and family-sustaining employment perpetuate inequality and limit the life chances of too many promising  people of color. The employment rate for young adults is at its lowest level in decades, and far too many people of color struggle to gain a foothold in the job market.

Public Allies is intentional about recruiting community leaders whose promise and potential are too frequently overlooked, dismissed, or ignored, including young adults aging out of the foster care system; our brothers and sisters who must remake their lives following incarceration; and single mothers seeking a bridge from GED to college and career. They need – and deserve – opportunities like Public Allies to activate their full leadership potential.
