HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE 17th SESSION OF THE YLP
“The FBI National Academy Associates’ Youth Leadership Program was more than just a week-long experience, it was life changing. The life skills that I was exposed to while at the Youth Leadership Program were extremely beneficial to my future success. The friendships that we created during the FBI Youth Leadership Program will surely last a lifetime. I highly recom- mend the FBINAA Youth Leadership Program to any young person who wants to participate in a unique and exceptional experience. I feel privileged and blessed to have experienced this incredible opportunity.” – Carissa L. Cahill, YLP Session #10
