Workforce Training Program

The Girl Security National Fellows program takes a unique approach to analyzing national security concerns, as participants cultivate an understanding of current & historic practices while gaining the skills needed to address future challenges across multiple sectors. 

The program is delivered in a 100% virtual format with a mix of synchronous and asynchronous content in an effort to remain as accessible to as many individuals as possible. Prospective applicants are encouraged (but not required) to register for Girl Security’s free mentoring program prior to applying to the National Fellows program to begin exploring their interests and building connections amongst the many amazing professionals within the Girl Security network.
