The Michigan Youth Leadership Academy (MiYLA), hosted by the Michigan State Police (MSP), provides teens ages 14-15 with the opportunity to develop leadership skills and build positive relationships with law enforcement officers. The teens will spend five days at the MSP Training Academy in Lansing, where they will receive instruction from MSP troopers as well as officers from their hometown police department.
