As a William Penn Fellow, you will have the opportunity to improve the overall effectiveness of state government by serving on one of ten projects that align with the Governor Wolf’s priorities of Schools that Teach, Jobs that Pay and Government that Works.


Schools that Teach

The Governor wants to ensure that every child in Pennsylvania has access to a high-quality education. This includes support for high-quality pre-k programs and making sure that students are college and career ready when they graduate. By making investments to adequately and fairly fund our education system, we will lay the foundation for long-term economic growth in Pennsylvania.


Jobs that Pay

To rebuild the middle class, the Governor is working to create jobs that pay and policies that support our manufacturing and new growth industries. By making Pennsylvania a place in which the private sector can grow, we will create and retain good jobs for our citizens.

Government that Works

The Governor is committed to government that is transparent, efficient, and improves service to the citizens of the commonwealth to make Pennsylvania a better place to live.
