Future Agents in Training

Future Agents in Training (FAIT) is a program hosted by the FBI’s Washington Field Office that invites high school students to receive hands-on training. This program works to educate and inform students about the mission of the FBI’s divisions: criminal, counterterrorism, intelligence, counterintelligence, and administrative. Students learn from special agents, intelligence analysts, language specialists, and professional staff about investigative tactics that include gathering evidence, interviewing witnesses, capturing criminals, and solving cases. The next FAIT program will be held August 3-7, 2015.
