One out of every three public servants in local government is eligible for retirement.
At the same time, only 3% of college seniors are taking jobs in government after graduation.
Finally, half of all current public servants lack necessary skills for engaging communities effectively.
Our two-year Fellowship enables local governments to fill key program, policy, technology, and administration roles.
Public university graduates are the largest pool of local and qualified talent, but have the lowest job prospects post-graduation.
Fellows receive intensive skills-based training throughout the program, as well as priority hiring for permanent civil service jobs.
