CIA's Homepage For Kids


What's this?

Not a joke but, rather, a kinder, gentler introduction to the black arts.


I guess they're taking seriously President Bush's recent order to increase the number of clandestine agents by 50% in the next few years.

Hey, the whole espionage community's gotten into the act: there's NRO Jr., a website for children put up by the National Reconnaissance Office,


which used to be so secret no one in government would admit it existed.

Then there's the NSA/CSS Kids and Youth Page, a production of the


National Security Agency, formerly known as "No Such Agency."

And don't forget FBI Kids,


for those who like their skullduggery domestic.

I've watched Chuck for 2 years and it inspired me too be a Cia agent! I have been training and can speak in a irish accent,scootish accent,i speak a little spanish. I was wondering can you be a teen and be a CIA agent? I'm 13 years old!

Posted by: Ben | Feb 14, 2010 8:09:24 AM

Ummm... To be honest, I feel kind of childish, thinking that people would allow children to become spies or undergo training to do so. Let me introduce myself. I have noticed that anyone can access this, and I'm sure you all have too, and do not quite feel right giving my name as so many others have. I am 13 years old, and am about to embark and become a freshman in high school. I regret ending my lessons in martial arts, but don't feel comfortable to start, as I didn't enjoy hurting people who had done nothing to me to deserve it. I have wanted to join the Central Intelligence Agency for a while, but am sure it is hard to get in, and I wouldn't "cut it"(make it in), which is too bad. I have wanted to get into some kind of program to help me train for when I get older, but am sure my parents wouldn't approve. I've only told one person, other than all of you, how I feel, just to get it off my chest and see their reaction, and wasn't surprised when they didn't say much, cause they don't usually. If you were wondering why I haven't stated how to contact me, it is because I don't feel comfortable saying, and don't feel the need to, either. Plus, I'm sure no one really cares. Ich kann auch Deutsch, et francais, sprechen, and I am learning how to speak Japanese. I have decided that the best thing I can do for the moment is to prepare myself in a way that won't seem obvious, unlike setting up camaras and motion-sensors in my backyard and try to get past them. I should probably stop typing now, as it is kind of noisy, and I am supposed to be asleep, but you know what they say (or I should say, "I say") "you can't stop real curiosity when it strikes!" Talk to you later! and no matter how discouraging I might have seemed (if anyone ever reads this), hang on to those ambitious dreams and keep working hard!!!!!!!! :)

PS. I think I've said a lot more than anyone else, but at least I was able to get that off my chest. Don't bother replying on this website, I probably won't look again! :)

Dear Shannon,
I think you have us confused with someone else. We generally strive to create malice, not quench it.

Posted by: Rocketboy | Mar 10, 2009 10:17:13 PM

Hello CIA,

My name is Shannon and I'm 15 years old.Im very interested in becoming a spy because i want to protect others that can't protect themselves. I want to work for the CIA because i know that they can help me find the person inside of me. I'm excellent in martial arts i have been taking it since i was five. What i want to know is that are there can secret camps in new york. I hoping that their is because i want to go their and train. I hope this page is actually for the CIA to read and realize that us kids are the future. I would just like to help this world to become a better place because the malice in this world is getting worst and its time to take some action.

iam a 17 year old and i am also intrested in joining the C.I.A. but i have to have a Bachelors degree, 3.0 GPA , 35 years or younger, a US citizen, and fluent in two or more languages. So if your really inyrested make a list of requirements check them off and after you have fufilled all the requirements apply online. so what this site is doing is making fools out of all us kids i say we stop acting so gulliable. Life is not a box of chocalates anymore so neither would the CIA. These movies are brainwashing us to complete madness. But maybe there is a spy camp for teenagers i am sure this Joseph guy would not help you get into the camp this whole site is boggess!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
