Youth Resources Webtour

The future of our rural communities depends on retaining our youth instead of exporting them to major population centers. Youth today are the first generation in history to grow up with digital and Internet technologies and are the technology leaders of our communities. We need to make sure they learn how to use the Internet to live and work anywhere they wish. The resources below, including the grant proposal templates, are intended to be shared without restriction to support the sustainability of rural communities.
