Congratulations Teen Academy Participants

Congratulations to seniors Isabella Walsh and Emily Wilhelm, who were selected to represent the Allegheny Valley School District at the 2021 FBI Teen Academy. Their application and essay were chosen out of hundreds of applicants in the Pittsburgh area. The Teen Academy program allows high school students an opportunity to get a comprehensive look into today’s FBI. Generally, each course iteration is a minimum of eight hours but can be a week-long program with blocks of instruction and demonstrations at a local field office. Students are provided with several presentations on topics including terrorism, cybercrime, public corruption, polygraph exams, evidence response, SWAT, and the day-to-day operations of a typical FBI office. Students also learn from special agents, intelligence analysts, language specialists, and professional staff about investigative tactics that include gathering evidence, interviewing witnesses, and assisting with cases. Congratulations! #DynamoProud
