Outdoor attractions like Camel's Hump add to the active lifestyle that keeps some young Vermonters in-state. But many others see more opportunity for career growth in major cities.

State officials have long encouraged young people to stay and work in Vermont. But still, many young Vermonters are choosing to leave the state to find opportunity elsewhere. To this end, the state launched a new jobs website last month, and the Vermont Strong Scholar Program seeks to reimburse tuition for Vermonters in some cases.
