Youth Tour brings more than 1,500 ambitious young people from across the country for an incredible week in the nation’s capital. Students discover American history, see how the U.S. political process works and learn about electric co-ops.
Participants are chosen through an essay contest in the spring of each year. For more information about Youth Tour, contact our Communications Department at 1-800-282-3824.
The annual Youth Tour to Washington DC is held each year in June. After arriving, students have very little time to rest – there’s so much to do!
Some of the sights include:
Not all of their time is spent touring. Students meet Florida congressmen/congresswomen, visit the headquarters of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, attend the Youth Day event and much more.
