Teen Academy

The Teen Academy informs and educates students so they have a greater understanding of the FBI's mission and goals. Through hands-on experiences and case discussions, we explain to our younger generation how the FBI addresses community concerns. The Teen Academy includes high school students—ages 14 to 18—from different areas and from public, private, and parochial high schools in Maryland. This event is held at the Baltimore Field Office during the summer for one-day from 7:45 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., when attendees receive certificates. The academy includes a tour of our facility and presentations on:

• The FBI hiring process;
• Polygraph, SWAT, Evidence Response Team, and forensics;
• Internet safety;
• Violent crimes/gangs.

For more information, call the Baltimore FBI office (410) 277 6289.
