What is Reimagining Rural?

Reimagining Rural is a program to increase volunteer engagement in rural communities. Reimagining Rural communities each host an in-person gathering for their local volunteers and leaders to watch rural-focused speakers via Zoom.  Following the speakers, each community has their own local discussion about the ideas they heard from the speaker and how they might apply locally.

2023 Reimagining Rural Gathering - June 13, 2023 - Townsend, MT

A successful one day, in-person conference for funders, policy makers, and partners invested in a vibrant future for rural Montana. The morning session was an overview of changes afoot in rural Montana and ways organizations are adapting to make an impact in remote communities. The afternoon session included speakers from four communities across the state who shared how they engaged their community and accomplished inspiring projects. Throughout the day, people had the opportunity to connect with peer organizations to discuss new ideas and learn how to work better with rural communities to help them achieve their vision and goals.
