Youth Tour

Boy writing on paper at the Vietnam Veterans MemorialEvery 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 an awesome way to learn about this great nation, develop leadership skills, gain a better understanding of electric cooperatives, and make friendships that will last beyond the week!

This all-expense-paid experience is geared towards high school juniors (who will be seniors during the school year following the Youth Tour) and whose parent(s) or guardian(s) are consumer-owners of Southern Indiana Power. Youth Tour takes place in June each year and Southern Indiana Power would love to send up to two individuals.

Youth Tour will be taking place June 11-18, 2023. To apply visit by March 1, 2023.
