Core Week: The adventure begins!

At the start of each year, the Public Allies participate in Core Week.  Not only do Allies learn the “nuts and bolts” of performing the Apprenticeship (How do I fill out my timesheet?  How does Team Service Project work? etc), but it’s also a key opportunity for the Allies to form their learning community.  Many Allies cite their peers as the strongest source of learning during their Apprenticeship, and the beginning of that bond happens at Retreat.  Retreat is usually an overnight stay at a conference center, where Allies practice team-building on high ropes and learn about each other through the Life Mapping activity.  Public Allies Central Florida recently posted a gallery of their Allies presenting their life maps, and even in those brief snapshots, you can get a sense of their personalities.
