Foreign Service Institute (FSI) Transition Center Resources

FSI's Transition Center and Overseas Briefing Center, both located on the campus of the George P. Schultz National Foreign Affairs Training Center in Arlington Virginia, offer a wealth of information and opportunities for Foreign Service families.

The Transition Center serves U.S. Government employees and family members of all foreign affairs agencies assigned to diplomatic posts abroad, providing training, referrals and information, as well as retirement planning workshops.

The Transition Center also assists personnel returning from Iraq, Afghanistan, or other high-threat assignments through the High Stress Assignment Outbrief Program.

The Foreign Service Life Skills Training – offers employees and their family training for effectiveness in the foreign affairs community and foreign service lifestyle by facilitating transitions throughout their careers. The continuum of training begins with presentations and courses targeting those new to foreign service life. In addition to employee-focused training, some courses are designed specifically for spouses, while other courses focus on children's concerns.

Security Training – seeks to raise the security awareness for those serving overseas, help people identify risks, and aid them in reducing their vulnerabilities to criminal and terrorist threats overseas. These security seminars are designed to meet the needs of the U.S. Government employee, their family members and partners, private sector organizations, and study abroad administrators.Classes are held regularly on topics pertaining to Foreign Service Life Skills and Security Overseas.
