What is the Electric Cooperative Youth Tour?
Every June, 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 rural youth about America and the role electric cooperatives play in developing strong rural communities. The 2018 dates are June 7-14, 2018.
Participating in the Youth Tour is an awesome way to learn about this great nation, develop leadership skills, gain a better understanding of electric cooperatives, and make friendships that will last beyond the week!
This all-expense-paid experience is geared to high school juniors (who will be seniors the school year following the tour) and a member of Southern Indiana Power. The Youth Tour takes place in June each year.
