courtesy MSPYLA

On Sunday, ten young men from Flint reported to the Michigan State Police Training Academy in Lansing for the MSP Youth Leadership Academy. The goal of the academy is to inspire teens to recognize their potential, be leaders in their communities and build positive relationships with law enforcement officers.

During the five-day academy, officers from the MSP, Flint Police Department and Mundy Township Police Department serve as mentors and classroom instructors. Lessons focus on the “Keys for Character,” which include service, integrity, excellence, courtesy and pride. Instructors teach the students how to apply these traits to their everyday lives in an effort to have a positive impact in the community as well as at schools and homes.

Students also receive instruction in physical activity, first aid, military drill, water safety, nutrition and public speaking. There are also team and character building exercises. the academy also includes a tour of the State Capitol and Michigan State University. Students who successfully complete the academy will graduate during a ceremony at noon on Thursday.
