Iowa Youth Leadership Academy advertisementWe’re looking for students interested in public service and leadership

High schoolers who attend our Zoom sessions in October will have a chance to win AirPods and a $1,000 college scholarship!

Iowa’s electric cooperatives are pleased to once again offer a virtual opportunity for rural students to learn more about advocacy, electric cooperative career opportunities, and the cooperative business model with a three-part webinar series in October. The Iowa Youth Leadership Academy is open to any high school student in our service area.

Once students register online for the Iowa Youth Leadership Academy, they can attend the webinars from their own computer or mobile device or come to the local co-op office where you will get free meals, SWAG, and extra chances for prizes! Each Zoom session will last around 45-60 minutes and focus on a specific topic:

  • Thursday, Oct. 6, 7:00 p.m. – Cooperative Business Model
  • Tuesday, Oct. 18, 7:00 p.m.  – Rural Iowa Advocacy
  • Thursday, Oct. 27, 7:00 p.m. – Civic Involvement and Leadership
