Youth Leadership Congress
"We’re looking for high school leaders!”
Each year Central Wisconsin Electric Cooperative is pleased to sponsor area high school students at Youth Leadership Congress held at the University of Wisconsin River Falls campus. Youth Leadership is a fun, educational, and unique event that is planned by and for teenagers. Through a mixture of seminar sessions, hands-on activities, and team building experiences; participants are exposed to a variety of real-life issues and will be given the opportunity to identify and explore their leadership potential. For more information call 715-677-2211.
The 2020 Youth Leadership Congress (YLC), planned for July 14-16, 2020 at UW-River Falls, has been canceled due to the continuing need to avoid large gatherings in an effort to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. This will be the first summer that the longstanding, popular youth leadership gathering will not be held since the program was first launched in 1964; however, the number-one priority is the health and safety of students, electric cooperatives, and their members. Next summer's YLC is tentatively set for July 13-15, 2021.
