The FBI Youth Academy works with community partners to offer high school students an inside look at the workings of the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation). This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to engage with FBI agents, law enforcement officers, forensic experts, and community leaders to foster academic excellence, leadership skills, team building and career exploration.
In addition, The FBI Youth Academy will provide high school students with a greater understanding of the FBI’s mission and role as an intelligence and criminal investigative agency. Through hands-on activities and case presentations, the students will gain a greater understanding of how law enforcement can be an asset to their community. Students will learn the value of cultural awareness, celebrate diversity of varying backgrounds, and gain skills to resolve conflict in their communities. At the end of the program students will have the knowledge and skills to go back to their communities and be positive role models for their peers.
Portland's 2018 Teen/Youth Academy will run from July 9 to July 13, 2017. The application period opened January 1, 2018.
