Working for former president Barack Obama is a dream job on many of our bucket lists. And guess what? You can now actually make that goal a reality!

On Thursday, our favorite commander in chief took to Instagram  to encourage those interested in politics and/or making a difference in their communities to apply to the Obama Foundation Fellowship Program.

“When I left office, I told you all that the single most important thing I could do would be to help prepare the next generation of leaders to take their own crack at changing the world,” he wrote on the social media platform. “The @ObamaFoundation Fellows program is looking to do just that — train and support civic innovators who are solving problems in their communities in creative and powerful ways. Apply to join our inaugural class of twenty Fellows by Friday, October 6th:”

The two-year program seeks to assist future leaders who are tackling issues of public concern in innovative ways that go beyond traditional establishments.

Way to go, Mr. Obama.
