The 2021 JQA Foreign Policy Leadership Development Program


Prepare for your foreign policy career and learn how to drive foreign policy change at the John Quincy Adams Society’s digital Foreign Policy Leadership Development Program this June. In nine sessions, you will hear from top experts on U.S. foreign policy (like Harvard professor and Foreign Policy columnist Stephen M. Walt), connect with veterans of a variety of foreign policy career fields and with other aspiring foreign policy professionals, and learn how to be an effective leader on campus from students who have done it themselves. Participants who attend all sessions will receive a certificate of completion that they can list on their resumes. We will be gathering online for an hour on every Tuesday and Thursday in June at 7pm ET. Best of all, there is no fee to participate in this program. Registration ends on May 23, 2021.

What is JQAS?

The John Quincy Adams Society (JQAS) is a national network of student groups focused on U.S. foreign policy, with a centering vision of restraint. Our chapters aim to help college students advance, both intellectually and professionally, while promoting a broader and more strategic conversation about America’s approach to international affairs. We’re nonpartisan and nonpolitical: we work in the world of ideas, not on activism or elections, and we seek to work with every corner of the political spectrum.
