Investing in Youth
WECA Youth Leadership Congress: July 24-26, 2019 at UW-River Falls
As part of our commitment to the community, Barron Electric Cooperative sponsors area high school students to attend the the WECA Youth Leadership Congress, conducted by the Wisconsin Electric Cooperative Association (WECA). Through a mix of seminar sessions, hands-on activities, and team-building experiences, participants are exposed to a variety of real-life issues and are given the opportunity to identify and explore their leadership potential. Students also form and operate a working cooperative, and have a chance to serve on the Youth Board, which plans and conducts the next Leadership Congress. For more information, please contact Member Services at 800-322-1008 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
