Summit seeks to find ways to improve economic opportunity for young Wyomingites
Tuesday, September 03, 2019
For decades, Wyoming has had a youth problem.
It’s been a well-documented trend that, for years, the state’s young people have been leaving in droves, unable to find suitable jobs or opportunities to make a living in the place that raised them.
It’s a problem that groups like the Wyoming Business Council and the state’s economic development initiative, Endow, have come to recognize as critical to diversifying the state’s economy, particularly as Wyoming’s population grows older and revenues from traditional sources like coal decline.
