Additional Benefits

Members of the Livable Communities Corps will meet in person for a welcome retreat, and then virtually once weekly to engage in leadership development training. Public Ally members benefit from intensive training, learning, and development. Our leadership training is rooted in our core values: diversity/inclusion, focus on assets, collaboration, integrity, accountability and continuous learning. Training focuses on leading through these values such that they can be effective community builders, with an ability to co-create or emerge community solutions from whatever position they hold--be it CEO, project manager, or line staff. To help them achieve the objectives of their service projects, Members receive skills-based training on asset-based community development, servant leadership, building inclusive neighborhoods, community outreach, collaboration, volunteer engagement, community asset mapping, and project management. To enhance civic participation, Members participate in dialogues and critical reflections to connect their service to larger social issues. To enhance Members self-esteem and self-efficacy, they receive training in topics such as conflict resolution, time management, networking, and giving and receiving feedback--key areas of learning for Opportunity Youth and other adults who lack experience in the workforce. Public Allies sites will be supported by a national training and learning structure offered by Public Allies national office.
