The Riverland Energy Youth Ambassador Program is an educational experience and enjoyable program designed specifically for high school juniors. It's a great way for students to interact and work with other students by examining the business of operating an electric cooperative.
Applicants should have a sincere interest in learning about rural area development and cooperatives. Students will become familiar with the infrastructure of Riverland Energy Cooperative, learn about renewable energy, and have the opportunity to participate in youth leadership conferences and tour renewable energy sites and a power plant.
The program will run October - May. The only qualification is that students must be a junior in high school at the start of the program.
Application deadline for the 2021-2022 year has been extended to Oct. 1, 2022.
