Members of the 2014 class of the Faulkner County Youth Leadership Institute toured parts of Conway Regional Medical Center Wednesday for the group's session on health and wellness in Faulkner County. 

“The Faulkner County Youth Leadership Institute program is a great opportunity for young people. The program is designed to help students become more productive citizens and leaders. This program provides a unique character development experience that gives young people the opportunity to contribute something of value in their community.” said FCYLI director Marie Abrams.

As a member of the program the students participate in monthly leadership sessions that cover a variety of social, economic and political topics.

They begin their year with an overnight retreat and each class is responsible for a community service project.

The youth leadership program is a cooperative effort between the Faulkner County Leadership Institute and its alumni association, and school districts throughout the community.

Adults who have graduated from the Faulkner County Leadership Institute lead the youth program.
