Wisconsin Electric Cooperative Association Youth Leadership Congress

July 12-14, 2022, UW-Stout, Menomonie, WI

Each summer, high school students from around the state converge on UW-Stout for three days of fun and learning at the Youth Leadership Congress (YLC) sponsored by the Federated Youth Foundation and electric cooperatives from around Wisconsin. At the YLC, students learn about cooperative principles, make new friends, hear inspirational speakers and hone their leadership skills. Through a mix of workshop sessions, hands-on activities and teambuilding experiences, participants are exposed to a variety of real-life issues and are given the opportunity to identify and explore their leadership potential.
