What does Public Allies look like from the viewpoint of our Program Managers? From time to time, we’ll post quick reflections, or “Insights”, from our Program Managers from around the network. Taking the first swing, Andrea Glenn, Program Manager, Public Allies Arizona.
Today I witnessed one Ally struggle with the concept of accountability while another ally accepted it head on. It’s funny how three simple words, Team Service Project, can have such an effect on a group of Allies. While speaking with Jemia about their project and some things to take into consideration, I noticed that she was frustrated through the pitch in her voice. However, Haddy, who is also on Jemia’s Team Service Project, who I also had the same conversation with, shared a different perspective. She appeared to appreciate my ideas and coaching. All in a days work of being a Public Allies Program Manager!
