The FBI has an internship program for high school students.
The program offers paid internships to high school students who are interested in studying law enforcement, criminal justice, or computer science. The internships are meant to expose young people to careers in law enforcement and give them a chance to learn about the FBI.
The program is open to freshmen through seniors in high school, as well as college students who are still minors. It’s a great way for students who want to pursue a career with the FBI or other law enforcement agencies to get some real-world experience before making their decision.
