Adopt-a-School Program

junior special agent badgeAs part of the FBI’s Adopt-A-School Program, we have partnered with Bellwood Elementary School to host the Junior Special Agent Program. In this program, children are exposed to a positive law enforcement role model who encourages them to succeed in school performance and attendance, works to boost their self-esteem, and talks about ways to abstain from crime, drugs, gangs, and violence. At the completion of the program, the children receive a special badge and credentials and are given an opportunity to return for next years’ program and work as ambassadors to assist in classroom activities. This partnership developed as a result of contact with Communities in Schools of Richmond.
