Students Lead the Way at Electric Cooperative Youth Tour

What do 1,800 high school students, our nation’s capital, and electric cooperatives have in common? The Electric Cooperative Youth Tour, of course! Union Power is looking for the next generation of leaders to lead the way at next year’s Youth Tour in Washington, D.C., from June 20-26.

While in D.C., participants will have a chance to meet with North Carolina elected officials and discuss the issues that are important back home, as well as, learn about the cooperative business model, visit historic monuments, memorials, and a variety of Smithsonian museums. Without a doubt, Youth Tour has grown into an invaluable program that gives young leaders an experience that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.

Youth Tour delegates will be selected based on the completion of an application, short essay, and interview. Applications are due by Dec. 31 and available online at union-power.com/youthtour.
