Teen Academy Seeks Baltimore Youth Interested in the FBI

Any teens who might be interested in a life of crime fighting with the Baltimore FBI: This is a great opportunity to learn more about what the bureau does, while also beefing up the ol’ college resume. Announcement below: From Thursday, July 19, 2018 to Friday, July 20, 2018

The Baltimore Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is hosting a  Teen Academy. The Teen Academy is designed to promote an educational experience that we believe will provide students with a greater understanding of the FBI’s mission.  Through both hands-on experiences and case presentations, we seek to further explain to our younger generation how the FBI addresses the concerns of the community.

This event, scheduled from 7:45 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on both days, will take place at 2600 Lord Baltimore Drive, Woodlawn, Maryland.  The curriculum will include a tour of our facility and presentations on: •        Cyber Crimes:  Protecting Yourselves From Predators; •        Terrorism:  ISIS Recruitment Tactics; •        Drug Prevention:  Opiate and Heroin Usage; •        The Real Life “CSI”:  Collecting Evidence; •        Building Trust with Law Enforcement; ·             Travis Manion Foundation: Character and Leadership Development; •        FBI Careers; and much more.

The class will be comprised of students from different areas representing public, private and parochial high schools in the Maryland and Delaware area.  We would like you to nominate students in your school.  Students who are accepted to participate in this program must be in high school, ages 14-18. Please have the student download it from our website, https://www.fbi.gov/contact-us/field-offices/baltimore/community- outreach.  Signatures are needed from both a parent or guardian and a school official.  Incomplete applications will be disqualified.
