Youth Tour

Each summer, as many as 1,500 high school students from across the country spend a week in the nation's capital as part of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Youth Tour. The students are sponsored by electric cooperatives – cooperatives that are committed to educating America's youth about our country and the role electric cooperatives play in developing strong rural communities.

Participating in Youth Tour is an awesome way to learn about our country, develop leadership skills, gain a better understanding of electric cooperatives, and make friendships that will last beyond the week!
