Youth Leadership Council

Teenagers selected for Youth Tour are encouraged to apply to be the Arkansas representative on the Youth Leadership Council. The teenager chosen will return to Washington, D.C., for the YLC Conference in July and attend the NRECA Annual Meeting the following spring. He or she will develop even better leadership and public speaking skills, learn more about the cooperative business model and meet other student leaders from across the country. In addition, the YLC representative will be awarded the $2,000 Electric Cooperatives of Arkansas Youth Tour Scholarship to attend any accredited in-state institution of higher education, including vocational or technical schools. The YLC application will be included with the forms that Youth Tour winners and their parents must complete before the trip.
