Youth Tour for High School Students
It’s a once-in-a-lifetime travel and learning opportunity!
From the battlefields of Gettysburg to the halls of Congress in Washington, D.C., the Electric Cooperative Youth Tour June 9-14 explores leadership lessons from our nation’s history and immerses participants in the cooperative spirit.
To be part of this adventure, high school sophomores and juniors whose parents or guardians receive power from Great Lakes Energy must apply by Feb. 28, 2018.
Those selected for Youth Tour will attend an orientation in Lansing, then travel to Washington, D.C., on a motor coach that will make stops at historic locations along the way. In Washington, students will tour various monuments with a local tour guide and visit many famous points of interest in our nation’s capital city, including the Smithsonian Institution and Arlington National Cemetery.
A high point of the trip is the opportunity to ask questions and discuss issues with Michigan legislators during a visit to Capitol Hill.
Youth Tour, sponsored by electric co-ops for over 50 years, is part of Great Lakes Energy’s ongoing commitment to power its communities and empower our young members to improve their education and leadership potential.
