YOUTH TOUR: JUNE 13-18, 2023

Peace River Electric Cooperative is offering the trip of a lifetime to two ambitious students. If you are currently an 11th-grade student and your parents are members of PRECO, you are invited to apply for the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association Youth Tour.

What is Youth Tour?

Youth Tour is an annual six-day trip to Washington, D.C. by thousands of students from electric cooperatives across the country. As PRECO’s delegate, you’ll tour monuments and historic sites in our nation’s capital, meet U.S. Congressional Representatives and make new lifetime friends. Plus, you’ll learn how electric co-ops help your community thrive and grow.

If selected, you’ll travel with approximately 30 – 40 other students and chaperones from Florida electric cooperatives as you see the best of D.C. And, best of all: it’s all expenses paid courtesy of your cooperative.
