Host an Ally in Phoenix or Tucson
Do you have a project that you would love to implement, but lack the staff capacity or other resources? We help our partners increase their capacity to achieve their mission by matching them with diverse, talented individuals from the community.
Public Allies Arizona places these emerging leaders in full-time service to nonprofits in Phoenix and Tucson communities. 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.
SEED SPOT was a first-time Partner Organization in 2018-19 and had no idea what to expect from Public Allies. As a rapidly growing startup and globally-ranked social impact incubator, the team knew that they needed capacity-building help from some talented professionals. SEED SPOT was matched with two incredible Allies who positively impacted their ability to empower impact-driven entrepreneurs across Arizona. Supervisor Bianca Buliga said the organization was blown away by the Allies: "They exceeded our expectations in every way. Their adaptability, dedication to serving entrepreneurs, and quality of work were extremely admirable and we couldn't have been assigned a better match. We are thankful for the opportunity to advance our mission with them and can't wait for the next time we get the opportunity to work with Public Allies Arizona and the incredible Allies they place!"
