Delaware Electric Cooperative Offers Youth Tour to High School Students

After a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, one of DEC’s favorite events of the year is back on the calendar! Our annual summer Youth Tour takes place from Monday, June 20th – Friday, June 24th, splitting time between Williamsburg and Norfolk, VA.

Students participating in the tour will learn about the cooperative business model, attend dinners with fellow students from across the Mid-Atlantic and take part in activities within the area; including a tour of Colonial Williamsburg, a day trip to Busch Gardens, and more.

If you know an outstanding high school junior, please encourage them to apply! Submissions are due by April 1st. To participate in this program, students must be current high school juniors and their parent(s) or guardian(s) must receive their electric service from Delaware Electric Cooperative. Final selection for the Youth Tour will be made by a committee based upon an application and personal interview. To apply, please fill out the application linked below. Contact Lauren Irby via email at or by phone at 302-349-3132 with any questions.
