What motivates Public Allies to be involved in their communities?

I just uploaded the latest video about HSC's work to YouTube. This one was particularly fun to make because it is about Public Allies, a program that I am currently in. Visiting my fellow Allies at their placement organizations and hearing about what drives them to get up each day and develop civic engagement programs, help people apply for benefits, write grants and mentor kids--among other things--was inspiring. I hope others will be moved by this video (and great music courtesy of Cal, another Ally). Public Allies Miami is currently accepting applications.
