What We Do
The Learning Network began when 28 community leaders came together to learn and to share their ideas, experiences, and resources.
Each faced the same real world challenges and frustrations of being being a leader, and each discovered that the path towards helping their community thrive rested with helping other community leaders. Together, by linking and leveraging their assets, insights, and experiences, they found that they could learn faster together and collaborate to create crucial, innovative solutions.
Today, the future of rural rests with all of us, individually and collectively. Instead of competing with each other as community leaders, the path toward a thriving rural involves connecting with others in supportive ways and working to co-create the future of rural communities across the region, and that’s what the Learning Network strives to provide.
