Opportunity – Future Law Enforcement Youth Academy (FLEYA)
In July 2023, the New Haven FBI Field Office in partnership with Yale University Police Department, will be offering a youth program called Future Law Enforcement Youth Academy (FLEYA).
The program which will run July 16–July 22, 2023 is an overnight camp at Yale University. FLEYA will give 30 Connecticut high school students between the ages of 16 and 18, an inside look at today’s FBI, while simultaneously exposing them to various local, state and federal law enforcement agencies and practices. Yale’s campus provides an environment rich with the significance of education and the encouragement for students to pursue higher education.
Classroom training will be provided on various subjects including: cyber technology, investigative forensics, domestic and international terrorism, civil rights (hate crimes) and more. Information on the FBI Honors Internship Program will also be provided. Law enforcement professionals from the FBI, U.S. Attorney’s Office, and local police departments will provide instruction for this unique youth program.
FBI New Haven is currently accepting applications which are due March 31, 2023. A completed application must be emailed in PDF format to FLEYAprogram@fbi.gov. Please use the link below for the application.
