Govern for America builds the pipeline into public service by connecting high-potential recent graduates to high-impact roles in state governments through a two-year fellowship program.

Our public institutions are most effective and develop better solutions when they reflect the backgrounds and experiences of our communities. Govern for America recruits, trains, and places these emerging leaders into state governments and supports them to transform systems and activate a network of civic leaders across the nation. 

 We believe that entrepreneurial leaders inside government, empowered with the right skills and mindset, can transform government to design policy around people and promote an agenda of inclusion. Together, we can better meet the needs of all residents and ensure that our leadership reflects the communities we serve.
