2018 Youth Tour

The real power of our community lies in our youth. For more than 35 years, PEC has been proud to participate in the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association’s Youth Tour program. Each summer, our delegates join about 1,500 high school students from cooperatives across the country on an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C.!
