Developing Tomorrow's Leaders
Each summer, United Power selects local youth within its service territory who stand out from among their peers to represent the cooperative for a week in the mountains of northwest Colorado at the Cooperative Youth Leadership Camp or on an all-expense-paid trip to Washington D.C. for the Electric Cooperative Youth Tour. Students are able to build resumes, craft new friendships and develop important leadership skills to become leaders in their communities, school and among their peers. These youth trips also teach the youth the importance of cooperatives and the principles that govern them. United Power, along with other rural electric cooperatives in Colorado, are helping develop tomorrow's brightest leaders.
In an abundance of caution for our members and employees, United Power will not participate in either the Cooperative Youth Leadership Camp or Youth Tour in 2021.
We value these opportunities for our local high school students and future leaders in our communities, and hope to be able to offer these trips again in 2022.
