The Partners

Who can be a Partner?

Any nonprofit organization or government agency that is dedicated to serving the Metro Detroit community can partner with Public Allies Metro Detroit. Partnering with Public Allies Metro Detroit means you are investing in one of tomorrow’s community leaders.

All hosting organizations make a financial contribution that helps to underwrite the cost of the Ally's service term.  Each host organization provides the Ally or Scholar with a supervisor who:

  • Participates in development and monitoring of Ally or Scholar service objectives with their Public Ally program manager.
  • Provides mentoring and coaching.
  • Approves time logs and monthly service reflections; participates in semiannual meetings with the Public Allies program manager; and completes all surveys required by Public Allies National or Metro Detroit office.

How can you Partner?

There are many ways to partner with us! A few ways include: 

  • Hosting an Ally for a 10-month apprenticeship.
  • Hosting a Scholar for a 5-month apprenticeship.
  • Hosting a Team Service Project.
  • Facilitating or hosting a training.
