The Michigan 4-H Youth Conservation Council is an advanced environmental 
leadership opportunity for teens aged 13 to 19 that includes:

A one-year learning experience (with the potential for mentoring the 
following year) working with key conservation decision-makers at the 
regional and the state government levels.

Researching and presenting conservation issues to Michigan's legislative 
committees.

Improving your presentation and public speaking skills.

Being formally recognized as a youth leader in conservation public policy.

Networking with teens, agency professionals and government officials 
through meetings, training sessions, and satellite and Internet 
communication technologies.

Getting valuable information on future career opportunities.

The opportunity to receive a scholarship (teens 13 to 15 years old) or 
apply for a counselor position (teens 16 to 19 years old) at the 4-H Great 
Lakes Natural Resources Camp.


In the past years, the Michigan Youth Conservation Council has presented to 
a Michigan Senate Committee on Water Trails and Recreational Boat Petroleum 
Spills.

The Michigan Youth Conservation Council is open to all teens between the 
ages of 13  and 19.  For an application to be a member of the youth
