What is Youth Tour?
Every June, approximately 1,800 high school students from across the country spend a week in Washington, D.C. 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 our country 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.
Grand Canyon State Electric Cooperative coordinates Youth Tour to our nation's capital for the utilities in Arizona and California that participate in the program.
