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 a great way to learn about our nation, develop leadership skills, gain a better understanding of electric cooperatives and make friendships that will last a lifetime!

Dates: June 19 - 25, 2022 with an orientation in Great Falls on June 18, 2022.

Deadline: The essay and application must be submitted to NorVal Electric no later than November 30, 2021.
