LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - A new group is looking to make big changes in Arkansas in hopes of keeping millennials from moving away.
'Think Big' is a group of 25-year-olds to 40-year-olds working to address issues around the Capital City and around the state.
Through research, the group found that a few things younger people leave the state for are employment, safety, and fun attractions, so Think Big is hoping to create those opportunities in the Natural State.
They said it's important to keep this group because they want to make Arkansas the best state possible, and know the importance of keeping the younger generation here.
