The FBI’s Community Outreach Program supports the Bureau’s investigative mission by working to address multiple interrelated societal problems—including crime, drugs, gangs, terrorism, and violence. Linking community service, prevention, and law enforcement is a national trend spurred by grass roots efforts around the country, and FBI employees have joined this movement, volunteering in a wide variety of community-related efforts.
FBI New Orleans, in partnership with the Tulane University Police Department, will be offering a youth program called Future Law Enforcement Youth Academy (FLEYA). The program will run June 9-14, 2024.
The program is an overnight camp at Tulane University. FLEYA will give 30 Louisiana high school students between the ages of 15 and 17 an inside look at today’s FBI, while simultaneously exposing them to various local, state and federal law enforcement agencies and practices. Tulane’s campus provides an environment rich with the significance of education and the encouragement for students to pursue higher education.
Classroom training will be provided on various subjects including: cyber technology, investigative forensics, domestic and international terrorism, civil rights (hate crimes) and more. Information on the FBI Honors Internship Program will also be provided. Law enforcement professionals from the FBI, U.S. Attorney’s Office, and local police departments will provide instruction for this unique youth program.
