KALAMAZOO, MI (WKZO AM/FM) — Michigan State Police (MSP) are looking for 20 young women from the Kalamazoo area to participate in the 2023 Michigan Youth Leadership Academy (MiYLATM). MSP officials say attendance is free to the participant and the goal of the program is to partner young women, ages 14-15, with officers from their hometown police department and MPS to help them learn how to become leaders in their communities, while increasing positive perspectives of law enforcement. The four-day program will give female students a crash course covering various topics including water safety, nutrition, alcohol and drug awareness, gang awareness, domestic violence awareness, first aid, leadership, and public speaking.
