About the Military Spouse Leadership Development Program

The MSLDP is a free, global, and virtual training program focused on providing military spouses the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of Leadership, Service, Advocacy, and Mentorship. It serves developing leaders by unlocking their potential to become future action-oriented leaders, advocates, and mentors within their respective areas of interest and expertise. 

Over the course of four months, the program will provide a diverse cohort of 50 military spouses from all military branches training from:

  • Harvard University, National Preparedness Leadership Initiative
  • Psych Hub
  • Top military leaders and influential panel participants 
  • Impactful voices in the community
  • Professional communications training 

Upon completion, the participants will receive a Leadership Certificate from Harvard University, professional communications training, and micro-certifications in mental health allyship from Psych HUB.
