What is the Government-in-Action Youth Tour?
Every June, as many as 1,500 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.
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!
The annual tour is coordinated by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association and is sponsored jointly by NRECA, electric cooperatives such as Coos-Curry Electric and by statewide electric cooperative associations such as the Oregon Rural Electric Cooperative Association.
To qualify you must be a high school junior, live within our service territory, and your parent/guardian must have an active membership in their name. Applicants must submit a completed application and a short essay.
