NEW: MICHIGAN STATE POLICE YOUTH LEADERSHIP ACADEMY

Students age 14-16 are eligible for the Academy and a limited number of spaces are available.
The students will experience simulated drug busts and traffic stops with actual Michigan State Police patrol cars; will learn to safely fire a live ammo weapon with State Police firing range officers; experience the adrenaline rush of underwater rescue and recovery; learn first aid; experience intense physical training; and learn career opportunities.
The summer academies take place in two sessions: July 15 – 20 and August 5 – 10 of this year. Applications are due by June 4 for the first session, and July 2 for the last session.
Interested persons can apply by downloading the application at michiganlegion.org/trooper, or by e-mailing Deanna Clark at firstname.lastname@example.org, or calling her at 517-371-4720, ext. 11.
