Youth Leadership Atmore, a project of Leadership Atmore, strives to give Atmore area high school juniors a hands-on look at the community. The students work on team building
exercises at an overnight retreat and participate in monthly sessions throughout the school year, which focus on developing the students' leadership skills and self-confidence. Participants are given the opportunity to meet community and state leaders, visit
major businesses, government offices, a college campus, and law enforcement facilities while learning valuable skills that will prepare them for college and a career.
