What are electric co-ops and why do they sponsor the Youth Tour?
Rural Electric Cooperatives were created in the 1930s when President Franklin D. Roosevelt founded the Rural Electrification Administration. Thanks to the Rural Electrification Act, those brave farmers and ranchers took it upon themselves to create their member-owned utilities called cooperatives. This can-do spirit combined with the mission of giving back to the community is why electric cooperatives sponsor high school students in a weeklong, expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C.
