Each year, WECA Member cooperatives sponsor young people for participation in the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association's Youth Tour in Washington, D.C.  In June 2018, 15 high school students and recent graduates representing 10 Wisconsin electric cooperatives joined nearly 1,700 others from across the nation for the annual event. Wisconsin’s Federated Youth Foundation, a co-op sponsored, independent charitable organization, provides significant financial support for Youth Tour participation through the proceeds from investments financed by unclaimed co-op patronage credits.  

Every electric co-op has the opportunity to sponsor students for this educational tour of national monuments and visits with elected officials at their Capitol offices.

Associate Membership
