Wanted by the FBI: High School Students for FBI Teen Academy

The FBI Louisville Field Office announced today that applications for the annual Teen Academy are now available online.

The FBI Teen Academy provides an opportunity for high school students to catch a glimpse behind the scenes of the FBI. Upon completion of Teen Academy, high school students will foster a greater understanding of the FBI’s mission and how we serve our citizens, community, and nation. During the Academy, students will be afforded an opportunity to learn about how evidence and hazardous material are collected at crime scenes; discover how FBI SWAT executes arrests; learn about the domestic terrorism, civil rights, crimes against children, and cyber programs; and job opportunities and requirements.

This year’s course will be held June 7-10, 2022, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the FBI Louisville Field Office, located at 12401 Sycamore Station Place, Louisville, Kentucky, 40299.

Due to the vast diversity in our workforce, any student with an interest in the FBI, what we do, and how a relationship with the FBI can help their school, is encouraged to apply. The program is not exclusive to students interested in criminal justice. To determine who will be offered a seat in the class, students will be evaluated based on their application (school activities and community involvement) and an essay. A student’s entire application package will be considered, and the application process should be taken seriously by all applicants. The application, release form, and a supporting essay must be received by the FBI Louisville Field Office by 4 p.m. May 18, 2022. Applications can be emailed to louisville.outreach@fbi.gov or mailed to FBI Louisville, c/o Community Outreach, 12401 Sycamore Station Place, Louisville, KY 40299. Incomplete and late applications will not be accepted.
