High School Juniors: Youth Tour Applications Available From REC
Friday | January 21, 2022

REC's Youth Tour gives high school juniors an opportunity to learn leadership skills, hang out with peers from across Virginia, Maryland and Delaware - and have fun while doing it.

COVID-19 has changed the usual Youth Tour routine, but REC continues to work other Virginia electric cooperatives to bring local students a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Participants of the 2022 Youth Tour will get a fun and jam-packed trip to Williamsburg where they will learn about the electric cooperative industry, meet their local legislators, tour historic sites, and have some fun at Busch Gardens.

Natalee Coates, a Madison County High School student, made lifetime memories on last year’s Youth Tour trip.

“I had a great time on REC’s Youth Tour,” she said. “My favorite part was speaking with Delegates Jay Jones and Emily Brewer. They were amazing to speak with and I learned so much from them.” 

This year's trip will run from Monday, June 20, through Friday, June 24. The schedule is packed with educational and fun activities – as well as visits to historical sites.

Applications for REC’s Youth Tour are due by Feb. 25.

To learn more and complete the application, visit www.myrec.coop/youthtour or contact Brian Wolfe, REC’s Senior Public Relations Specialist, at 1-800-552-3904, ext. 5914 or community@myrec.coop.
