Lead for America recruits, trains, and places our nation’s most promising young leaders in two-year paid fellowships in local governments as a means of strengthening America’s public institutions, supporting our local communities, and cultivating a new generation of transformational public service leaders. We look to the local level because that is where communities are built. We look to government because it can create the tools we need to care for one another more strongly. We call it a movement because a Fellowship program is not enough and it's not all that we will be. This is just the first step of a nationwide campaign to bring together the millions of people hungering to make a difference with the communities that most need their help.
