Co-ops Yes! Leadership Conference
People's Energy Cooperative offers area youth the opportunity to attend the Co-ops Yes! Youth Leadership Conference held annually in March. The Cooperative covers all expenses except travel to and from the conference.
This two-day conference is designed to help high school sophomores, juniors and seniors gain a better understanding of the cooperative business model and develop leadership and problem-solving skills. In addition to speakers and group activities, a real cooperative is formed and operated during the conference. This dynamic experience is designed to help young people learn about and appreciate the purpose, operation, and scope of the cooperative business model.
The 2017 Youth Leadership Conference took place on March 6-7 in Eau Claire, WI. If you are interested in next year's conference visit www.cooperativenetwork.coop or contact Gwen Stevens at 507-367-7015 or 800-214-2694.
