Atlantic Council Take Point Initiative
Issue Area: Education and Employment
The Atlantic Council promotes leadership and engagement in international affairs based on the Atlantic Council¹s central role in meeting global challenges. Through its grant from the Bob Woodruff Foundation, veterans selected for the Take Point Initiative will receive unparalleled networking, mentorship, and training opportunities to launch new careers as leaders in national security and international affairs. Take Point Fellows are paired with exemplary mentors, thought leaders and policy advisors who will guide them, help them refine their goals, identify sector gaps and, ultimately, help them compete for seed funding. Previous and current cohorts unite to build projects in a hands-on environment, while meeting with top national leaders such as former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and former Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel.
