Make meaningful connections and help create a culture of belonging in the community by participating in Allies in Community®! The Allies in Community® program will soon be seeking participants for Cohort IV. Applications open at 8 am, Monday, May 15, 2023, and will be accepted until 5 pm, Sunday, June 18, 2023, at coppelltx.gov/allies.
Created by DiversityWealth and launched in partnership with the City of Coppell, Allies in Community® is an extension of a larger community engagement initiative to build knowledge and awareness of how to best serve residents of all cultural backgrounds. Since 2018, three groups of 30-40 residents and city employees called Cohorts, have experienced this unique program, which seeks to bring people from all backgrounds, cultures, and walks of life to discover common ground, create an inclusive environment, and boost meaningful contribution within the community.
Members of Cohort IV will attend four sessions on Saturdays from 9 am – 1 pm beginning in August through November along with additional group activities, community events, a welcome reception, and graduation ceremony. The total time commitment is approximately 24 hours.
Cohort participants are expected to be of good moral character and practice. Those who are dedicated to lifelong learning, creating a safe space for authentic conversation, being an advocate for the common good, and demonstrating Coppell’s community values in daily life are encouraged to apply.
Applications for Cohort IV open on May 15. For more information about Allies in Community®, please visit coppelltx.gov/allies.
