    The Stay Project invites those who are 30 and under to take part in a series of sessions for emerging leaders at the CARN Summit. If you want to talk to other young leaders about how to create a better future for our region by understanding the role of policy and collectively creating strategies for change, please join us for these parts of the summit:

    The sessions are a way to bring young participants at the CARN Summit together in order to help create stronger connections and voice, both during the summit and after for Central Appalachia.

    The Stay Project - a collaboration of the Appalachian Media Institute, High Rocks for Girls and Highlander Center - is a diverse regional network of young people working together to create, advocate for, and participate in safe, sustainable, engaging and inclusive communities throughout Appalachia and beyond.
