River Falls, Wis.
More than 100 high school students participate each year in Wisconsin Electric Cooperative Association’s Youth Leadership Congress at the University of Wisconsin–River Falls in July. The educational program introduces students from across the state to cooperative business basics; demonstrates the value of cooperation in everyday life; and offers sessions to help develop leadership skills. For many students, it provides a first glimpse of what college life is like.
