JGFA: OUR PUBLIC SECTOR IMPACT

Gardner Fellows experience service leadership across all sectors, including mentors at all levels of the government—from senators, Congressmembers, governors, mayors to agency heads and more. Following their fellowship year, one-third of JGFA alumni to date have gone on to work in government positions, and even more continue their careers at non-profits and NGOs.
