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.
2018 Youth Academy
The Portland Division partnered with the Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST) to host the 2018 Youth Academy. Thirty high school juniors and seniors from across the state joined us for the week-long, in-residence camp in July. The students had the opportunity to work directly with FBI agents, FBI specialty teams, and local law enforcement graduates from the FBI's National Academy program. The Oregon chapter of the FBI Citizens Academy Alumni Association provided support as well.
Dates for the 2019 Youth Academy will be set soon. Check back for further details.
