Sending teenagers to Washington, D.C.
More than 1,500 students from across the country use planes, trains and automobiles to get to the nation's capital to be a part of the electric cooperatives' Youth Tour each summer. The Youth Tour takes high school-aged students to Washington, D.C. for a week to learn more about electric cooperatives, view their government in action and reach out and touch places that have taken a prominent role in our nation's history.
Students who attend the trip gain leadership and teamwork skills. North Carolina's electric cooperatives offer the expenses-paid experience to help develop future leaders. To learn if your cooperative sponsors students on the Youth Tour visit NCElectricCooperatives.com/youthtour.
