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.
The Portland Field Office is offering a new opportunity for high school students to engage with us during this time of physical distancing: FBI Virtual Teen Events. These sessions allow students to explore the world of law enforcement, to build leadership skills, and to become positive role models in our shared community. Participants must be Oregon high school students in the 2020-2021 school year.
Topics covered can include:
- FBI careers
- FBI Honors Internship
- Avoiding risks of online social exploitation
- “Chasing the Dragon: The Life of an Opiate Addict”
- Life as an FBI agent
- Intelligence: Identifying and prioritizing today’s threats
