Pisciotta Selected to Attend FBI Youth Leadership Program
BILOXI, Miss. – Quinlan Pisciotta will attend the highly selective FBI Youth Leadership Program this summer. The program is June 20-28.
Every year, this program selects one 14-16 year old student from each state and an additional 10 students from any state. The application process includes transcripts, essays, physical exam, and an in person interview with local law enforcement and FBI agents. Pisciotta had applied last year but when scored objectively she placed second in the selection process. After being encouraged to submit an application again this year, she was selected.
There is no cost to attend the program as the local FBI office covers expenses. Students selected to attend get to tour the facilities at Quantico, Virginia and attend daily leadership seminars. One of the days of the program, students will have the opportunity to tour Washington D.C.. Additionally, Pisciotta will be tasked with passing physical challenges and complete a challenging running course that is used by FBI agents as part of their training.
