Wanted by FBI Denver: High School Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors for Teen Academies
2019 FBI Denver Teen Academy Applications Now Available
Applications are now being accepted for FBI Denver’s 2019 Teen Academies which will take place on June 12 (Denver, Colorado), July 13 (Laramie, Wyoming), and August 2 (Colorado Springs, Colorado). Any student interested in the FBI, what we do, and how a relationship with the FBI can help his or her school and community is encouraged to apply. The Teen Academy is open to incoming high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors (2019 graduating seniors are also eligible) enrolled in a public, private, charter, or home school program. The applicant must currently attend school within Colorado or Wyoming to be eligible to apply.
Students selected for the FBI Teen Academy will spend an interactive day with special agents and professional staff participating in both classroom and hands-on activities. Classes will offer an insider look into criminal and cyber investigations, hands-on experience involving evidence collection, and tactical operations, all while learning about the FBI’s core values. After completing the class, students will be more aware of the challenges their communities face and better understand how the FBI serves their community. Teen Academy graduates are encouraged to mentor their peers by sharing the knowledge they have gained through the program.
The FBI’s Teen Academy application process allows for the identification of a diverse pool of students who are capable of leadership and have an interest in the FBI. An essay is required of all applicants. The essay will be the first element of the application package which will be reviewed and provides an insight into the student’s motivations for attending. All applications should highlight the student’s school activities and community involvement, which will be an important part of the criteria used to evaluate the applicants.
Applications, supporting essay, and release form must be received at the FBI Denver Field Office by 5 p.m. on April 15, 2019. Incomplete and late applications will not be accepted. Teens accepted into the FBI Teen Academy will be notified by May 15, 2019. Send completed and scanned applications via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or:
