FUSE Corps partners with government leaders to identify the strategic challenges that they deem most pressing. The organizaion then recruits, trains and supports entrepreneurial professionals to serve in yearlong, executive-level fellowships focused on civic innovation. FUSE Fellows help increase leadership capacity and infuse new approaches and skillsets across a broad array of issue areas including education, health, poverty, economic development and the environment. FUSE is ultimately working to inspire leaders around the world with the potential of cross-sector, community-based problem solving.
