SALT LAKE CITY - The FBI Salt Lake City Field Office is inviting high school students in Idaho, Utah, and Montana to apply to attend the Teen Academy, which will be held virtually April 11-14 from 4 to 6 p.m. each day.

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," says an FBI press release.

During the academy, students will have 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.

Any student with an interest in the FBI, what they 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.

All students will be evaluated based on their application, including school activities and community involvement, and an essay to determine which students will be offered a seat in the class.

The application, release form, and a supporting essay must be received by the FBI Salt Lake City Field Office by 4 p.m. March 11, 2022. Click HERE to download the application and more information.
