Belonging: Youth Voices On Wyoming's Outmigration

Wyoming has been faced with a declining population and around 60 percent of 18 to 24-year-olds leave the state every year. The ENDOW Initiative, the state council concerned with diversifying the state's economy, has made reducing the outmigration of youth a top priority.

The "Belonging" series features the voices of young people from across Wyoming in conversation with each other exploring what's behind their decisions to leave or stay.

Wyoming Public Radio's Tennessee Watson is producing the series in collaboration Cheyenne East High School teacher Charles Fournier.

Throughout the series, we will explore the idea of a Wyoming where young people want to be, from economic, political and cultural perspectives.
