The Sprout – Summer 2023

Upcoming Events – Registrations Open

Departmental Showcase

Every Tuesday from June 20 to August 22 at 1:30 pm ET

Being a federal public servant means you have 300k colleagues. The public service is a career map with multiple destinations and you can follow opportunities without terminating your employment. You should never feel stuck in one job, one team, under one branch, or in one department.

By showcasing a sampling of departments, the Federal Youth Network and its partners will guide you on your public service journey.

Join us virtually every Tuesday this summer to hear about cool jobs, common role responsibilities, and bust misconceptions from future leaders in their departments.
