Intelligence Training Opportunities for High School Students

Lead-America.orgThe National Security & Intelligence conference, hosted by LeadAmerica, provides high achieving students with the opportunity to build real world career skills and analyze leadership attributes within the environment of our nation’s capital.  For ten days, students examine historic and current challenges to National Security, while understanding the roles and methods of diplomacy and intelligence through focused workshops on Iran, the Kashmir Crisis, and the Cuban Missile Crisis.  In addition, students analyze issues such as information sharing, the origins of terrorism, intelligence ethics and the proliferation of WMD’s, while also attending briefings at the U.S. State Department and the Saudi Arabian Embassy.  Students visit the Pentagon and the International Spy Museum and participate in an engaging Career Planning Seminar, which exposes them to career tracks and the requisite training for the fields of Intelligence and National Security.  Students also complete LeadAmerica’s skill building curriculum, which fosters necessary skills such as teambuilding, time management, and communication, culminating in the formulation of a personal mission and vision statement.
