Now Accepting Applications for the FBI’s Teen Academy

ARIZONA—Have you ever wanted to be part of a SWAT Team? Collect evidence or fingerprint a suspect? If so, then consider participating in the FBI Teen Academy.

The FBI Phoenix division invites all interested Arizona high school upcoming juniors and seniors (class of 2025/2026) to apply to the FBI Phoenix Teen Academy. Class will be held on June 12, for Phoenix students and June 14, for Tucson students from 8:30 a.m.- 4:00 p.m.

The FBI Teen Academy program provides an opportunity for students to learn about the different careers within the FBI, and actively engage with FBI agents to learn about crime prevention, evidence gathering, and investigative techniques.

Graduates of the Teen Academy program develop a keen understanding of how the FBI interacts and works with local law enforcement agencies to protect our communities.

Participation is free and volunteer organizations provide supplies for the events. Applicants must be rising juniors or seniors in high school in the state of Arizona.

This is a competitive program, and not all applicants will be selected. Student selection for the Teen Academy will be based on a quality application and written assignment. The application, release form, and supporting assignment must be received by the FBI Phoenix office by May 10, 2024. Incomplete and/or late applications will not be accepted.
