What makes electric cooperatives different from other utilities is that "giving something back to the community" is part of their business plan. Why do electric cooperatives bring high school students to Washington, D.C.? Because it is important to learn about the political process and to interact with government. Students will come home from this, all expenses paid, once in a lifetime opportunity as a better leader with a sense that they can make a difference.
The Electric Cooperative Youth Tour has brought high school students to Washington, D.C., every June since the late 1950s. Students on the tour learn about electric cooperatives, American history, and U.S. government, and walk away with a greater understanding of their roles as citizens. It is truly a ONCE IN A LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY!
