The 2024 Youth Tour will be held in June 16 - 23, 2024! The Youth Tour delegates who will be representing BCEC in Washington are Landri Lawrence and Jayci Nichels.
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(link is external). 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!
Follow us on Facebook to see updates from their trip this coming June. Photos will be updated periodically while they are in Washington.
If you would like to be a Youth Tour delegate in 2025, applications will be available in the Fall of 2024.
