Young people between the ages of 21 and 40 who are motivated to provide leadership in their rural communities face big challenges, including:
- Isolation from peers
- Lack of formal transfer of leadership practices
- Leader “burnout”
- Limited opportunities to engage with peers
- Lack of professional development opportunities
Through CYN, these young people are brought together in purposeful ways to expand networks, grow skills, think boldly and take action on behalf of their rural communities.
