The Rural Futures Institute at the University of Nebraska believes:
Young leaders are a social resource that is vital to the future of our state.
Young people provide a needed infusion of ideas, energy and passion to their rural communities. Their commitment to continued growth and leadership is critical.
Nebraska must make a serious, long-term investment in the next generation. Through purposeful engagement and networking opportunities future leaders can gain the tools and skills they need to be catalysts of change.
By sharing interests, ideas and concerns young leaders can create actionable next steps that drive progress.
