Youth Tour

NO BARRIERS WARRIORS

CoBank, a cooperative bank, is partnering with No Barriers Warriors and is sponsoring up to 50 Veterans from rural areas across the U.S. to participate in an outdoor expedition that challenges them mentally and physically and help them to transform their lives. The full cost of the program, including travel, will be covered by CoBank. CoBank has invited Norris Electric to nominate a veteran with a disability from our community. If you know of a disabled veteran that would benefit from the No Barriers Warriors program, please contact Norris Electric before April 1st.

Youth Tour

What is the Government-in-Action Youth Tour?

Every June, as many as 1,500 high school students from across the country spend a week in the nation's capital as part of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Youth Tour. The students are sponsored by electric cooperatives – cooperatives that are committed to educating America's rural youth about America and the role electric cooperatives play in developing strong rural communities.

Participating in the Youth Tour is an awesome way to learn about this great nation, develop leadership skills, gain a better understanding of electric cooperatives, and make friendships that will last beyond the week!
