Article on the increasing migration of young people out of Maine, and a new initiative by Gov. John Baldacci's administration that hopes to solve the state's "brain drain" problem. The initiative, called Realize!Maine, currently consists of a website, "www.realizemaine.org," with testimonials by young people, as well as online forums and links to employment and education websites. On June 19, the Governor's Summit will gather about 300 young people at the University of Maine at Orono to discuss the issue. Another initiative, the Maine Compact for Higher Education, offers reduced or free college tuition to eligible students to offset Maine's relatively high tuition at its public universities.
