Govern For America is fighting to reactivate the promise of democracy: government of, by, and for the people it serves. We connect emerging leaders into full-time government jobs and provide the training, mentorship, and community they need to build the skills to lead while sparking a lifelong commitment to public service.
Our mission is to build the next generation of public servants to create a more responsive government that better reflects and serves our communities.
The GFA fellowship is a competitive two-year program that propels emerging leaders from diverse backgrounds into key positions in government to address our nationís biggest challenges. Full-time work. Full-time salaries. Your career starts at Govern For America.
Over two years, Govern For America Fellows receive intensive training, responsive mentorship, and support from an extraordinary community of peers doing inspiring work around the country. As a Fellow, you will leverage your skills and experiences to create better outcomes for all communities and share lessons learned with a broader network of fellow leaders. Whether youíre combating the effects of COVID-19, working to end mass incarceration, or expanding access to high-quality pre-K, government is where we see leadership in action.
