Youth Tour Program
Each year Pointe Coupee Electric sponsors students who have competed in a writing contest to attend an all-expense paid trip to our nation's capital. This program has been successful in promoting excellence in youth development, leadership training, government in action, as well as creating an awareness of the important role our electric cooperatives play.
Our youth are the future. Impacting the lives of young people is extremely important to Pointe Coupee Electric and the electric cooperative community. The mission of the youth program sponsored by local electric cooperatives is built on the belief that textbooks and lectures alone are not enough to help young people understand the democratic process and gain the skills necessary to become tomorrow's leaders. Rather, today's teenagers also need an opportunity to experience government first-hand by visiting the nation's capital and engaging in interactive workshops and discussion.
