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!

The application for 2024 is available here. Applicants can return it to the El Dorado Springs office or mail it to Sac Osage Electric Cooperative, Attention Chance Cyr, PO Box 111, El Dorado Springs, MO 64744.
