Youth Tour is an annual leadership program coordinated by Butler Rural Electric Cooperative and Ohio's Electric Cooperatives. Youth Tour was established in 1964. Since that time over 50,000 young Americans have been selected by their electric cooperative to participate in this trip. Many of the students who have participated in the past have credited the Youth Tour in becoming successful professionals. It has also benefited our local communities. Youth Tour participants return home from their trip with a deeper understanding of what it takes to be a leader, and as a result, they put these skills to use right here in our community.
