Live Big is dedicated to meeting adolescents where they are, offering them the skills and resources they need to become confident, resilient leaders of their own lives. 

We are building a connected community of adolescents and trained Guides to spread this transformational work. This is why we partner with, support, and train incredible, passionate, dedicated professionals at schools and school districts. This is also why we create resources for parents, caregivers, and guardians. 

Because when our children rise, we all rise.

In the first episode of the new season of The Rural Voice, we talk with Dr. Brad Mitchell about the research of place and process of rural education from a data-informed perspective. Dr. Mitchell talks about somewhere (rural) and anywhere (urban and suburban). We discussed the role of emotion and between-group conflict, such as city and rural tension, the reemergence of populism, women's rights, diversity, and others, as well as the American shift toward being "groupy" and how it insulates us from perceived threats to our values and groups. In addition to this main topic, we talk about access to resources such as money, natural resources, services, and the fear of consolidating small communities. Much of the curriculum and policy in the future will be related to places, resources, and job markets - and how rural education changes to meet these challenges through the somewhere versus anywhere paradigm.
