Delaware Electric Cooperative Offers Youth Tour to High School Students

Are you ready for an adventure that combines learning, fun and the chance to make lasting connections with students from across the nation? Current high school juniors served by DEC are encouraged to apply to embark on DEC’s Youth Tour!

Every June, over 2,000 students and chaperones from Co-ops across the United States unite in Washington, D.C. to explore the vital role of electric cooperatives in shaping America. This year, DEC will sponsor three students to represent Delaware for the Electric Cooperative Youth Tour, taking place June 17-21, 2024. Participants will experience a day on Capitol Hill and enjoy the best of our nation’s capital; from Major League Baseball games and a show at the Kennedy Center, to iconic sightseeing and dinner cruises on the Potomac River. Forge lifelong friendships with peers from diverse backgrounds and make lasting memories during this all-expenses-paid opportunity. 

Your Co-op is excited to offer this unique and educational experience to future leaders --- so apply today!

Application deadline is March 29th.
