Future Leaders Program

Future Leaders Program

The purpose of the Future Leaders Program is to cultivate the next generation of foreign policy leaders in Washington, D.C.  The program identifies young professionals who share FPI’s commitment to international engagement, support for America’s allies, expanding political and economic freedom, and a strong military. 

FPI connects these young leaders with influential foreign policy experts, authors, and practitioners at monthly dinner discussions and offers professional development and networking opportunities with program alumni, FPI experts, and media figures.
