The applications period for the 2018 Youth Tour program has now concluded. The announcement of participants will be made in early March.
REC sponsors students from throughout our service territory to join more than 1,600 students and their chaperones to participate in Washington Youth Tour every year. Through this once-in-a-lifetime experience, students will seize the opportunity to become concerned citizens better aware of the issues facing their communities.
The students learn how a congressional office works, including how legislative aides assist congressmen with important issues and how a congressional office stays in touch with constituents in its district. Highlights of the week include a tour of Capitol Hill and meeting local congressmen.
