Crooked Tree Youth Leadership

The Emmet 4-H Leadership Academy is a collaborative education program sponsored by the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians, Emmet County Board of Commissioners and Michigan State University Extension. The program provides selected high school aged students an opportunity to learn about tribal, local and state government with a “hands-on” approach.  Students will also engage in identifying public issues, and learn how citizens work within government to accomplish public objectives and meet community needs.

If you are interested you must be between 14 and 19 years of age and complete an application available below.
