The FBI, through its Community Outreach Program, is partnering with the Learning for Life and Exploring Program to provide information to young people on career choices and qualifications for law enforcement careers.

The Youth Criminal Justice Academy event supports the Learning for Life and Exploring mission of enabling young people to become responsible individuals by teaching positive character traits, career development, leadership, and life skills so they can make ethical choices and achieve their full potential. This mission also falls in line with the FBI’s goal of providing positive learning opportunities, career awareness, and safety information to young people.
