The Center for Rural Strategies Board, Staff, and Rural Youth Assembly Planning Team have decided to cancel the September 2020 Rural Youth Assembly in McAllen, TX. The continued spread of Covid-19 demands that we take seriously the health and well-being of our participants, event staff, and their communities. We are disappointed that we will not be able to bring together this group of incredible young people in person, but we are committed to creating other avenues to engage and connect with rural youth going forward.
Rural Strategies is committed to fostering a culture of healthy and productive relationships, and we take seriously the social contract that exhorts us to take care of our relationships. If you have concerns or questions about this announcement, please reach out via email or phone. Thank you for taking care of yourself, your neighbors, and your rural community.
