Crooked Tree Youth Leadership


What is the Crooked Tree Youth Leadership Program?

  • This program is a collaborative citizenship and leadership experience sponsored by Michigan State University Extension, the Emmet County 4-H program and the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians.
  • It’s an opportunity for teens to explore and expand their knowledge of the structures and intricacies of tribal, county and state government. You’ll work as a team to identify community issues, learn that youth have a voice and that your actions do make a difference!
  • Participants will also travel to Lansing to attend the “4-H Capitol Experience” citizenship program. You’ll visit state offices and agencies, have breakfast with your state senator and representative, visit with lobbyists and spend time at the Capitol.

To request an application packet or for more information on this program,
