2017 FBI Los Angeles Teen Academy

2017 FBI Los Angeles Teen Academy

The FBI’s Los Angeles Field Office is accepting applications for the 2017 Westwood Teen Academy, 11000 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, California, 90024, Ronald Williams C-206 Conference Room, on Saturday, March 11, 2017, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

If you are a high school student, between 15 to 18 years of age, with a GPA of 3.5 or higher, and residing in the Los Angeles Field Office area, you are welcome to apply to the Teen Academy. Space is limited to 50 students and acceptance is not guaranteed. Application packages are currently available at www.fbi.gov/losangeles, click on Community Outreach, and scroll to Teen Academy.

Interested students should complete and submit the required application and materials via e-mail to Katherine.Gulotta@ic.fbi.gov or via U.S. mail to the FBI’s Los Angeles Field Office, Attention: COS Katherine Gulotta, Office of Public and Congressional Affairs, 11000 Wilshire Boulevard, Suite 1700, Los Angeles, California, 90024. Applications must be received by 4:00 p.m., Wednesday, February 15, 2017, for panel review. Incomplete and late applications will not be accepted.

Due to the vast diversity in our workforce, any student with an interest in the FBI, what we do and how a relationship with the FBI can help their school is encouraged to apply. All students will be evaluated based on their essay and application (GPA, school activities and community involvement) to determine which students will be offered a seat in the class. None of the above elements will be the sole basis of evaluation of an application and the application process should be taken seriously by all applicants. The program is not exclusive to students only interested in criminal justice.

Punctuality, professional behavior and appropriate dress code will be required of all students attending this program.

The Teen Academy offers insight into a number of topics and specialties including the importance of making good choices when using online communication platforms, what violations of federal law the FBI investigates, what is required of all FBI applicants, and the FBI’s domestic and international roles. Students will also enjoy numerous hands-on experiences involving specialized areas of the FBI, such as the Evidence Response Team. After completing the class, students are more aware of challenges their communities face, better understand how the FBI serves their region, and are better prepared to mentor their peers.

The FBI’s Citizens Academy Alumni Association, Los Angeles Chapter, generously sponsors lunch for all students in attendance. Further directions are included in the application packet.
