What is the Government-in-Action Youth Tour?

Every June, some 1,800 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 The students are sponsored by electric cooperatives that are committed to educating America's rural youth.

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!
