2017 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!

Some of the things students will do and see on the Youth Tour: 

  • Washington Monument
  • World War II Memorial
  • Albert Einstein Memorial
  • Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorial
