YOUTH LEADERSHIP PROGRAM
The FBI-NEIA is offering to a qualified student (ages 14-16) who has demonstrated above average academic standards (3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale), as well as good citizenship, the opportunity to participate in an eight day program of leadership development at the FBI Academy facility in Quantico, Virginia.
This exciting program is offered through the cooperation of the FBI and the generosity of the FBI National Academy Associates. The candidate selected will be sponsored (transportation and student sponsorship fees) by FBI-NEIA.
Although the program is not limited to young persons interested in a future career in law enforcement, interested candidates should posses a desire to gain knowledge of the American system of criminal justice, police organization and function, criminal law, the structure and operation of our criminal courts, as well as leadership skills and personal development. Upon successful completion of the program and final exam, graduates of the program may be eligible to apply for three college credits.
This year’s session of the Youth Leadership Program begins June 19, 2013 with arrival at Reagan Airport in Washington, DC and will conclude on June 27, 2013 with departure from Reagan Airport in Washington, DC.
The program is open to males and females. Applicants must be either the son, daughter, grandson, or granddaughter of an FBI-NEIA member. Applicants must be physically capable of participating in all of the program activities. Qualified young people are encouraged to complete the application, including the necessary signatures, and to submit the forms to Bud McKinney by March 15, 2013.
