The Youth Tour Experience!
What is Youth Tour?
Youth Tour is an annual leadership program sponsored by Logan County Electric Cooperative and Ohio's Electric Cooperatives. It’s a week long, all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C., that gives high school students the opportunity to meet with their congressional leaders at the U.S. Capitol, make new friends from across the state and country, and see many of the famous Washington sights. Electric cooperatives from 43 states will send about 1,600 students this year for the annual tour. Will you be one of them?
“I knew the cooperative principles, but prior to this trip, I did not know what they really meant,” said Youth Tour participant Jackie. “What I learned is that the cooperative is not about money. It is not about anything except for serving your members as well as could possibly be served.”
