Challenge statement

After years of out-migration and economic decline, our community will rebuild its once thriving economy by empowering young people through technology-enabled intergenerational knowledge transfer, leadership development, innovation and entrepreneurship in order to reduce out-migration, promote economic development, lower rates of unemployment, and reduce poverty for future generations.
