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.
