GET READY!!! The Youth Tour is back!!! We are so happy to share with you that the 2022 Youth Tour will be held in June!!
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. 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!
Due to COVID 19 circumstances, the Youth Tour was cancelled in 2020 and 2021. Applications for the 2022 Youth Tour will be available at either of the BCEC offices, at area high school counselor's offices or online. Eligible Youth Tour applicants must have completed their sophomore year in high school or be classified as a current junior or senior. Students must have a valid Texas Drivers License or Texs ID and be a United States Citizen. Students cannot be older than 19 years of age by May 31, 2022.
