Public Allies Connecticut is a program of RYASAP (Regional Youth Adult Social Action Paternership), and a proud member of the AmeriCorp national service network.
Public Allies Connecticut has partnered with nonprofit organizations across Bridgeport, New Haven and Hartford to create New Leaders for New Times. Public Allies sees strong partnerships as a key strategy for strengthening communities, nonprofits, and civic participation and are always seeking out community-minded entities. Public Allies is changing the face and practice of leadership in communities across the country by demonstrating the belief that lasting social change results when citizens of all backgrounds step up, take responsibility, and work together.
We are hosting Jennifer Myatt, our Public Ally for the 2014. She recently graduated from the Unviersity of Connecticut with a Bachelor of Science in Sport Management. "I joined Public Allies because I had a great experience working with a non-profit organization in college. I wanted to work with a non-profit in my community after graduating. I truly hope to increase capacity of the CMHC Foundation and better the whole CMHC community", Jenn says.
We are excited be a partner organization with Public Allies this year.
