Rural-Urban Student and Entrepreneur Exchange

Moving Montana Forward by Uniting Rural and Urban Communities
and Building Entrepreneurial Spirit

Great Falls to White Sulphur Springs

 

Imagine watching your students transform into active thinkers, eager participants, leaders.  They consciously begin to cultivate strategic community networks.  They realize they can truly be the drivers of their own destiny. 

That is some of what students take home from their Rural-Urban Student and Entrepreneur Exchange Experience.  As an educator participating, you can: 

  • offer students real-life experiences that can both meet and enhance classroom instruction and authentic application of their learning;
  • provide the spark that sets a student on an exciting and rewarding career path;
  • ensure our young people are introduced to pathways to stay or return to Montana and lead a prosperous future.

LEARN how students and teachers have applied innovation and collaboration to identify and meet a need.

  “As a Superintendent and educator, I have lived and worked in rural Montana and know the challenges that members of these communities face. Finding employment, health care and transportation and maintaining schools, businesses and family farms are a daily challenge. A dialogue that explores ways to enhance the well-being of all Montana’s people is a great starting point.” 

- Kirk Miller, Executive Director, School Administrators of Montana
