Youth Tour Opportunity for High School Juniors

Do you know a high school junior who loves to make new friends and travel? If so, tell them about our Montgomery and Washington Youth Tours.

This once in a lifetime experience provides opportunities for students to learn about the history of Alabama and the United States. They also learn about the cooperative form of business and the legislative process, not to mention they make lifelong friends! The best thing of all is that all the trips are FREE!

In order to be eligible, students and their family must be served by Pea River Electric Cooperative.

The 2020 Montgomery Youth Tour will be held March 10-12, 2020. At this event, more than 160 students and chaperones will tour many sites around Montgomery and will participate in a variety of leadership programs.

The 2020 Washington Youth Tour is sponsored in conjunction with the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) Youth Tour that is held every June. This week long, annual event will bring more than 1,600 high school students across the nation to Washington, DC to tour various sites and meet members of the legislature. The Washington Youth Tour will be held June 19-25, 2020.
