Help us tell the stories of immigrant youth in rural Minnesota

We couldn’t tell the story of young people in rural Minnesota without including the children of immigrant families and the young people who have migrated to Minnesota on their own. We’ve been doing this throughout our “Rural Minnesota: Generation at the Crossroads”  project, and you can help.

If you are a young immigrant between the ages of 17 and 25 living in rural Minnesota, or if you are older than 25 and have a story you’d like to share or somebody you’d like to put us in touch with, please connect with us through one of the simple forms we’ve created for this project. If you work with immigrant youth in rural Minnesota, there’s a form for you also, and we’d be very glad to hear from you.

If you’d like to help, click on a link below. You’ll be taken to a form with a few quick questions. If you know someone who you think could help us, please pass this post around!
