FBI Denver Announces Summer Teen Programs
Interested in learning more about the FBI? The FBI Denver Field Office will be hosting a few programs for high school teens this summer!
FBI Denver conducts Teen Academies annually across Colorado and Wyoming. Teen Academies are one-day events where attendees learn about FBI career options, hear a case presentation, participate in interactive Evidence Response and SWAT demonstrations and learn about online safety.
These are this year’s locations:
- Casper, Wyoming – June 11, 2022
- Cheyenne, Wyoming – July 9, 2022
- Durango, Colorado – Sept. 17, 2022
Each session can accommodate 30 to 40 participants. Applications and deadlines for the Teen Academies can be found on the FBI Denver’s website: https://www.fbi.gov/contact-us/field-offices/denver/community-outreach.
The FBI Denver Field Office also will be offering two Cybersecurity Teen Boot Camps in Denver, one on June 21 and another on July 19. During each 5-hour session, attendees will hear presentations on cyber security/privacy and have hands-on training with a MacBook Pro, virtual Windows 10 PC, iPhone 11, and a Google Pixel phone. Each session will be limited to 10 students.
The Cybersecurity Teen Boot Camp will be held at the FBI building in Denver and will be facilitated by FBI Denver Chief Security Officer Michael Mercer, who has more than 13 years of experience in cybersecurity and privacy.
