Government-In-Action Youth Tour
Socorro Electric Cooperative will sponsor 5 students, one from each high school in our service territory: Socorro High School, Belen High School, Quemado High School, Magdalena High School, Alamo Navajo High School or a home-schooled student, each year to Washington D.C. on the Government-In-Action Youth Tour, typically held each June.
The Government-in-Action Youth Tour has taken high school students to Washington, D.C., every June since the late 1950s. Students on the tour learn about electric cooperatives, American history, and U.S. government, and walk away with a greater understanding of their roles as citizens. It is a ONCE IN A LIFETIME EXPERIENCE!
- You must be a dependent of an active Socorro Electric Cooperative member with account in good standing.
