Five youth selected to the council.

The Michigan 4-H State Youth Leadership Council (SYLC) welcomed five new members who will serve a two-year term on the council. Established in 2015, SYLC is a statewide leadership opportunity for Michigan 4-H Youth Development participants ages 15-19. SYLC members serve as representatives of the Michigan 4-H program, promoting 4-H through state and local activities, and provide youth voice and perspective to inform statewide programs and goals.
