Due to safety concerns and planning unknowns associated with COVID-19, the 2021 Youth Tour has been canceled.
What is the Government-in-Action Youth Tour?
Every June, 1,700 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(link is external). 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!
