The Foreign Service community offers support to each other through a variety of online communities. Please note that these groups are not officially sponsored by the Department of State.

If you are interested in joining non-official online groups - gaining new insights and information - send a short email letting the moderator know how you are connected to the Foreign Affairs community and why you would like to join. Some of these groups are restricted membership.
