A great career start. Successfully completing this course impresses colleges and helps with many careers.

School officials, teachers and students: The American Legion brochure sent to the schools listed many American Legion programs but was limited in details. This web page should answer any questions but if you have others please contact Deanna by phone or email. We know you are all very busy but all the students should have the opportunity to attend the Academy. Our programs benefit the youth and the discipline and self confidence gained from this Law Enforcement  experience gives students a head start on  their career path. To find an American Legion Post to contact, go to this link: www.michiganlegion.org/pdfs/locate_city.pdf

Legionnaires, some of you have given students a boost in their self confidence through attendance at the Academy, but very few Posts and High Schools can point to a student in their area who has attended.  To give more of our youth this opportunity, the schools need help from local Posts and their members. Make contact with the proper school officials and remind them of the brochure that was sent to them. A face to face contact is always best. Let them know what the Trooper program is all about and how to get applications and all the information from this web site. Ask for a chance to talk directly to a group of students. Let the contact know that you will call back to see which students might be interested and help with the application process. Remember, if the Post cannot handle the sponsor fee, alone there are other sources for at least part of it. The candidate’s families have been helping so their youth can attend.
