Due to concerns for the health and safety of our youth tourists, staff, and community, The Electric Cooperative Youth Tour was canceled in 2020 and held virtually in June of 2021 . Unfortunately, with health and safety still a primary concern, Union Power has decided to forgo participation in the Youth Tour experience scheduled for June 2022. Rest assured, the decision not to participate was made with careful consideration, as we were looking forward to connecting with our local North Carolina youth once again through the Youth Tour. Thank you so much for your understanding, and we look forward to seeing you again for the 2023 Youth Tour.
About Youth Tour
The Electric Cooperative Youth Tour is an annual event coordinated by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) and the North Carolina Association of Electric Cooperatives (NCAEC). “Tourists” are sponsored by local cooperatives. These students learn about the electric cooperative business model, American history, and the U.S. government.
