GO! Fellowship

GO! Fellowship

Applications are open until May 7!

Are YOU the leader we’ve been waiting for?

In today’s world of hyper-partisan politics, it’s easy to get frustrated at “the system” – whoever and whatever that means – and disengage. Through the GO! Fellowship, America’s Future is cultivating leaders who say, “I know I can do something to make my community better.” Yes, we’re young professionals. But we’re also parents, immigrants, first-time home buyers, and people who simply care about the present and the future of their communities. 

This 3-month fellowship equips participants to be effective grassroots organizers and leaders in their communities. Participants learn how to convene people around local issues and advance the ideas of liberty. This fellowship explores the following questions:

  • What is “Grassroots Organizing” and why does it matter? 
  • How do I communicate my ideas?
  • How do I fund my ideas? 
  • What does it look like to build meaningful relationships that leverage change? 

From advocating for the needs of the unhoused to equipping Gen Z to run for office to sustaining global cultures and languages, our GO! Fellows are improving people’s lives and enacting change.

Meet The GO! Fellows Manager!GO! Fellowship 2


Marcos Lopez is a passionate advocate for free-market principles, individual rights, and limited government. Currently serving as the Outreach & Coalitions Director for the Nevada Policy Research Institute, Marcos is deeply involved in government affairs and coalition development across the state. Simultaneously, he serves as GO! Fellowship Program Manager at America’s Future. Born and raised in Miami, his journey led him to Nevada in 2015, driven by his commitment to protecting economic opportunities, advocating for criminal justice reform, and championing school choice.

Despite his aversion to cold weather, his advocacy extends far beyond the sunny confines of his home states, resonating across nine states and Washington D.C. Away from his advocacy work, Marcos finds joy in staying physically active, cherishing moments with loved ones, and savoring the aroma of fine cigars.
