Each year Somerset Rural Electric sponsors high school juniors on the National Rural Electric Youth Tour, a week long trip to Washington, D.C.
When in Washington, they join over 1,800 other students from around the country. They usually have the opportunity to meet with their senators and congressman and ask questions. It gives them a great opportunity to see how our government really works.
In keeping with our commitment to the communities, Somerset Rural Electric is pleased to invest in the youth of our area.
If you are interested in being selected for this trip, please see your high school guidance counselor or contact the cooperative office at 814-445-4106.
Unfortunately, Youth Tour 2020 was canceled. Fifteen students were chosen as representatives of Somerset REC for the 2020 Youth Tour. The co-op is happy to announce that Somerset REC will take any student that was selected to go in 2020, the opportunity to attend Youth Tour 2021!
If you are interested in Youth Tour, this presentation is a great insight to experiences and memories made in Washington, D.C.
