Youth Ambassador Program
If you are a high school junior or senior who wants to learn more about cooperative principles, develop leadership skills, and explore careers in a cooperative, then the Youth Ambassador Program is designed especially for you!
The Youth Ambassador Program will give students the opportunity to learn about the functions of a cooperative board by preparing a case study throughout the school year; tour our wholesale power supplier facilities (Dairyland Power Cooperative); take part in community events; and take advantage of leadership activities at the UW-River Falls Youth Leadership Congress and the Electric Youth Tour in Washington, D.C.
Students who actively participate in this program have an opportunity to apply for the Youth Ambassador $1,500 scholarship. The recipient of this scholarship has the desire to continue his or her education beyond high school and is actively involved in leadership activities promoted by the Program. There is also an opportunity for a Youth Ambassador to apply to attend the Electric Youth Tour in Washington, D.C., sponsored by Jackson Electric Cooperative.
To learn more about this program, ask your high school guidance counselor or contact Jackson Electric Cooperative. Complete this application form online or contact our office. Students will be notified of acceptance into the program before the start of the school year. A tentative schedule will soon be available.
