America's Future GO! Fellowship for Community Leaders in America 2024

In today’s world of hyper-partisan politics, it’s easy to get frustrated at “the system” – whoever and whatever that means – and disengage. Through the GO! Fellowship, America’s Future is cultivating leaders who say, “I know I can do something to make my community better.” Yes, we’re young professionals. But we’re also parents, immigrants, first-time home buyers, and people who simply care about the present and the future of their communities. 

Aim and Benefits

This 3-month fellowship equips participants to be effective grassroots organizers and leaders in their communities. Participants learn how to convene people around local issues and advance the ideas of liberty. This fellowship explores the following questions:

  • What is “Grassroots Organizing” and why does it matter? 
  • How do I communicate my ideas?
  • How do I fund my ideas? 
  • What does it look like to build meaningful relationships that leverage change? 

From advocating for the needs of the unhoused to equipping Gen Z to run for office to sustaining global cultures and languages, our GO! Fellows are improving people’s lives and enacting change.
