Public Allies Arizona is now recruiting Partner Organizations for the 2010-2011 program year!

Do you have a project that you would love to implement, but lack the staff capacity or other resources to bring it off the shelf? Or maybe you have a program that would benefit from an innovative and enthusiastic young leader... Public Allies Arizona will place talented, diverse young adults in service to non-profits across the nonprofit community four-five days each week. These nonprofits - called Partner Organizations - are chosen based on their ability to provide the Ally with significant work experience, as well as their need for an innovative young leader who can help them take on a project they otherwise could not afford or infuse energy into an existing project.
