Youth Tour & CYCLE

Youth Tour to Washington, D.C.

June 14-20, 2019 - The Electric Cooperative Youth Tour is an annual week-long event during which more than 1,500 high school juniors from all over the country convene in our nation's capital to learn more about government, cooperatives, and rural electrification.


The Cooperative Youth Conference and Leadership Experience (CYCLE) is a program sponsored by the Missouri Electric Cooperatives. It brings together some of the brightest young leaders from across Missouri. The focus is to show students more about electric cooperatives, teach them leadership skills and give them the opportunity to experience Missouri state government.

The program includes nationally known speakers and a day at the state Capitol. There is also time for some fun things like an outdoor barbecue and team competitions in various events like the “build a Cooperative” game. This conference is for high school sophomores and juniors who desire to lead their schools! The entire trip is all-expense paid! CYCLE has been honored with a national award for community youth programs and has the great potential to change lives!

The CYCLE for 2019 trip was held on July 17-19.
