The 2014 Secretary’s Honors Program Cyber Student Volunteer Initiative will provide unpaid student volunteer assignments at DHS field offices in more than 60 locations across the country.

The program, created in April 2013 by former DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano, provided assignments at Immigrations and Customs Enforcement’s computer forensic labs in 36 cities nationwide. The 2014 program will expand to include new opportunities at the Secret Service, U.S. Coast Guard, the Transportation Security Administration, the Office of Intelligence and Analysis, the DHS Office of the Chief Information Officer and additional state and major urban area fusion centers and ICE labs.
