Rural by Choice

Despite decades of economic decline and brain drain for many rural communities, some young American adults are choosing to stay in their rural communities, to return home if they’ve left, or to make a new home away from the big cities. . Hear the stories of three of them, and discover why they’ve made this choice, the opportunities and challenges they are facing, and what efforts are they making to improve their communities’ futures.
