Rural Youth Assembly
Meetings of Interest
Monday, January 06, 2020 11:42 AM


The Rural Assembly will host the Rural Youth Summit April 2-5, 2020 in McAllen, Texas. Fifty young adults from rural places across the country will gather to discuss the issues that they see as important to their lives and their communities. We will engage a diverse group of young people to build awareness around issues of relevance across rural geographies and identities, including income, race, culture, faith, accessibility, gender, and sexual orientation.


The Rural Assembly is seeking young people age 16-24 who are interested in rural and Native issues and invested in strengthening their communities. We look for individuals who are willing to engage in respectful and sometimes challenging conversations, and are committed to finding common ground to create solutions.
At the Rural Assembly, leadership takes many forms. Some of us are meant to carry
megaphones, others write commentary or policy memos. Some craft art and poetry, while others stuff envelopes and work behind the scenes. But all roles are key to building community and creating change. We want all young people, especially those often caught on the margins or those serving community in quiet ways.


To apply, youth must complete and submit the online application form online at To complete the application, youth will need to submit 1 letter of recommendation from their sponsoring organization and a 1-2 page response to short essay questions. All applications are due Friday, January 31, 2020 at 5 P.M. EDT.

More information on the summit and the nomination and application process can be found online at
