How to Get Involved

Forty-five high school freshman are selected to participate in the Midland County Youth Leadership program.Applicants must be a resident of Midland County. Students that do not attend a Midland County high school, including those who are home-schooled, can still apply as long as they meet the residency requirement. Selection is based on an application, two letters of recommendation and a brief interview (held on February 3 - 4, 2020). Application materials are available online and must be submitted online by by the extended deadline, 11:59 p.m. on January 10, 2020. Applications must be completed in full, with two attached letters of recommendation and preferred interview times selected.

The program is funded in part by the Leadership Midland Alumni Association, as well as area service clubs and community organizations. Area businesses are also sponsoring students’ participation in this year’s program, and in-kind contributions of time, supplies and facilities help keep the program affordable for youth. Speakers and presenters all donate their time and talent.
