Allies in Community Seeks Participants for Cohort II

Build bridges, foster a sense of belonging, and encourage civic engagement in your community by becoming an Ally! The Allies in Community Program is now accepting applications for Cohort II. The deadline to apply is August 23 at 5 pm.

Created by DiversityWealth and launched in partnership with the City of Coppell, the Allies in Community Program brings together a Cohort of 30-40 residents and city employees from all backgrounds, cultures, and walks of life to discover common ground, create an inclusive environment, and boost meaningful contribution within the community through fun, hands-on workshops. The program is an extension of a larger community engagement initiative to build knowledge and awareness of how to best serve residents of all cultural backgrounds.

All are welcome to apply for the Cohort II! If you're an advocate for your community and want to do your part to connect neighbor to neighbor, please apply. Members of Cohort II are expected to:

  • Attend six sessions on Saturdays from 9 am – 1 pm beginning in October through April
