Public Allies Miami Celebrated the 8th Graduating Class through Presentations of Learning


Public Allies Miami Celebrated the 8th Graduating Class through Presentations of Learning
Twelve AmeriCorps members made public presentations of their learning and leadership experience.


MIAMI – On June 22 and 23, Catalyst Miami hosted the AmeriCorps Public Allies Presentations of Learning at Jungle Island in Miami. During the two-day event, twelve Public Allies made public declarations of how they made a difference in South Florida and grew as leaders before an audience of nonprofit colleagues, friends, family, and prospective Public Allies.

Speakers at this event included The Children's Trust CEO Charles Auslander, introductions from Opa-Locka Community Development Corporation, Florida Immigrant Coalition, The University of Miami, The Children's Movement of Florida, and more. Public Allies Miami received a proclamation in honor of the 8th local graduating class from Miami-Dade County Commissioner, Audrey M. Edmonson, naming Tuesday, June 23, 2015 “Public Allies Miami Day.” 

Public Allies are local young adults who are devoted to making a difference in South Florida. Their 10-month apprenticeships at local nonprofit organizations allow them to hone their leadership skills while gaining meaningful professional experience. Graduating AmeriCorps Public Ally, Kareena Rozier, said, "I now have a deeper understanding of the connections that hold us together and the factors that drive us apart. Of the work I’ve done recently, I feel most confident about becoming a more committed, passionate, and engaged community member."

Public Allies' mission is to advance new leadership to strengthen communities, nonprofits and civic participation. Public Allies is changing the face and practice of leadership in communities across the country by demonstrating our conviction that everyone can lead, and that lasting social change results when citizens of all backgrounds
step up, take responsibility, and work together.

  2. Fastest Cars In The World We can measure automotive excellence in several ways, but top speed which a automobile can achieve is the one everyone secretly cares about the most

  3. "This photo is perfect except for background which is...". Well, let's say "bad". Have you ever thought like that? Probably, you even made an attempt or two to edit the picture with the ruined Photo Background Editor, to no avail. Surely, not all of us are designers or at least IT savvy. So, here is a way for the rest of humanity to change the back scene of any photograph – the Photo Scissors online tool.
