2017-2018 City Hall Fellows Network Mentorship Program

Thank you for your interest in the City Hall Fellows Network mentorship program and your commitment to local government and public service!

City government can be one of the most rewarding places to work, but it can also be one of the most challenging environments where it becomes easy to lose sight of your aspirations for making a positive impact on your community. We believe there is huge value in connecting mentors and mentees to help prepare and inspire the next generation of civic leaders to help manage the needs of our cities.

Although there are many professional development opportunities, the City Hall Fellows Network brings together years of experience in organizing high caliber groups of young professionals and helping them succeed in city governments through the right combination of inspiration, practical skills, and support from fellow professionals. We leverage unique working knowledge in the cities and regions where we have active alumni and friends—knowedgeable, talented, and ambitious professionals that care about making an impact.
