4-H Citizenship and Tribal Citizenship Academies news, programming and other resources from MSU Extension.

Participants take a hands-on approach to learning about democracy at the local level by seeing firsthand how local, county and tribal governments work during these academies for high school-aged young people. They attend board or commission meetings and visit with department heads and court officials. They work as a team to identify a community issue that’s important to teens, then prepare and present an action plan about it to a local or county commission or a tribal council.
