Young leaders with a passion to make a difference in their community can apply for apprenticeships with stipends at nonprofit organizations across Iowa through Public Allies Iowa Americorps, a new program being launched this month by Iowa Community Action Association in partnership with AmeriCorps. The inaugural class of 25 leaders will serve organizations in Greater Des Moines and seven other Iowa communities, including Cedar Rapids, Cedar Falls, Decorah, Dubuque, Marshalltown, Perry and Harlan. Applications are being accepted through October from young adults interested in participating in this year's class, which begins this month. Click here for more information or to apply.
