This highly selective program is for Congressional staff interested in generating dialogue and developing the skills and relationships required to advance bipartisanship on national security and foreign policy issues. Through training, networking, and exclusive activities, this unique program aims to build a “next generation” of foreign policy and security experts equipped to respect differences, build common ground and achieve US national interests.
The program’s activities provide the opportunity to participate in:
Intimate discussions with policy makers and members of Partnership for a Secure America’s esteemed Advisory Board
A special tour of the State Department, Pentagon, or West Wing and meeting with Executive Branch official
An interactive seminar designed to enhance negotiation and communication skills
A dynamic simulation of a National Security Council meeting with former high-level officials playing the role of National Security Advisor
An off-site weekend retreat that includes in-depth policy discussions on vital national security and foreign policy issues
An active alumni network that convenes regularly for discussions with top national security figures and enables further professional networking
In past sessions, participants engaged in small-group discussions with such PSA Advisory Board members as former National Security Advisor Anthony Lake and former Homeland Security Advisor Frances Townsend, published op-eds in international newspapers, and gained valuable connections that developed into bipartisan and bicameral professional relationships.
