Chalkboard with Question, “How Does the Program Work?”

The programs vary. In some cases, our agents and staff members will focus just on mentoring and tutoring in the classroom during the school year. In others, they work with school officials to set up a 10- to 16-week Junior Special Agent program that teaches a course in civics and how to be a law-abiding citizen. At the end of this program, kids who pass the course graduate and are awarded Junior Special Agent status.
