MassFiscal is growing fast, with many exciting changes on the horizon. Today, we want to tell you about our newest program, the Massachusetts Fiscal Fellowship.
Too often talented students interested in policy and politics leave Massachusetts for Washington, D.C., in search of interesting learning opportunities. Keeping young, fiscally-minded young people involved and interested is crucial to our mission. That's why we've created an educational and experience-based fellowship.
Networking with current leaders in government, shadowing successful entrepreneurs, and studying the inner workings of Massachusetts politics are a few of the ways we engage and nurture the Fellows.
In June, we hired our first Fiscal Fellow. Today, 21 young professionals ranging in age from 16-30 years old are working with MassFiscal across the state, and we plan to double that number in the next month. We think of these folks as a small but forceful army for better policy and more fiscally responsible government in the future.
Your dedication to MassFiscal and your financial support has allowed us to identify, train, and fund the fellowship program. You’ll hear more from us in the coming weeks about all of our fellows and what they’ve been up too. We can’t wait to share the details with you.
Below are a few snapshots of our fellows touring MassFiscal Chairman Rick Green’s distribution center at 1A Auto last week. For information, including how to become a Fiscal Fellow, please click here.
