Young leaders making a difference

It was a meeting of young minds in Flint Saturday.

The Flint and Genesee Chamber of Commerce Youthquest Advisory council welcomed high school students from Genesee County Schools for a day of learning, leading and brainstorming.

The student-run event encouraged the kids to make positive changes in their homes, schools and communities.

"Right now they are just talking, getting the ideas flowing about what they can do what are the needs in their school, their community, in the world as they see it," says Kate Potts of Youthquest.

The guest speaker was Matt Langdon, the founder of Hero Construction Company.
