OUR HISTORY

In 2003, fellowship alumni established the John Gardner Fellowship Association to bring together alumni of the John Gardner Fellowship Program for the purposes of self-renewal, job growth, leadership training, and social networking. While independent of Stanford University and UC Berkeley, the JGFA is dedicating to furthering the mission of the John Gardner Fellowship Program at both schools. The JGFA was started in 2003, now has 182 members and is entirely run by volunteers.

MISSION STATEMENT

  • Promote the values and ideals exemplified by John Gardner.
