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.
United Power is now accepting applications for Youth Tour and the Cooperative Youth Leadership Camp. Applications are available below.
Youth Tour deadline: January 19, 2020
Cooperative Youth Leadership Camp deadline: January 31, 2020
