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.
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.
You can look for the 2018 Youth Tour applications at the end of this year!
