Youth Tour

What is the Government-in-Action Youth Tour?

The Rural Electric Youth Tour to Washington, D.C. is taken each year to provide young adults with the opportunity to travel to our nation’s capital:

  • to experience first hand how our government functions,

  • to learn about the complexities of today’s electric utility industry,

  • to discover the unique characteristics of cooperative business enterprise,

  • to meet and work with hundreds of their peers from throughout the United States




To be eligible for the Rural Electric Youth Tour to Washington, the following provisions will govern the acceptance of applicants from the local cooperatives:

  • Applicants must have completed their junior year in high school, and be enrolled for their senior year.
  • Applications submitted by systems that are members of Whitewater Valley REMC will be given first consideration.  If there is room and they can be accommodated, applicants from non-REMC members will be considered on a first come-first served basis.
