We’re designing people-centered solutions to our cities’ toughest issues, empowering local governments, and sharing insights for scalable change. We work with cities on a range of issues, including economic and workforce development, healthcare, public safety, climate change, and education.
Our approach centers around an executive fellowship program. We work closely with our government partners to design yearlong strategic projects, recruit experienced leaders to take on those challenges, and provide the ongoing support to help fellows achieve their full potential for community impact.
By helping to craft new policy, roll out new public services, and improve existing programs, we allow governments to work better for the people they serve.
Over the past six years, FUSE has placed 100 fellows in 20 cities throughout the country. After their fellowship year, more than 50 percent of alumni have continued to work in roles in civic leadership, and 90 percent of our partner government agencies have returned each year with requests to host additional fellows.
