For those members that have a young adult who is entering their junior year in high school, Tanner Electric Cooperative offers them an opportunity to visit Washington DC, understand our democratic process and gain the skills necessary to become one of tomorrow's leaders. On this trip, they will be able to experience our government first-hand by visiting our Nation's Capital, meeting their Representatives and Senators, and engage in interactive workshops and discussions. This program is sponsored by the NRECA.
Tanner will pay for airfare, lodging and activity fees. The student only needs to bring spending money for souvenirs and extra purchases aside from the itinerary activities.
