2021 Youth Delegate Program

2021 Youth Delegate Program

I am pleased to once again notify you of an exciting opportunity available to local 11th-grade students. Annually, the Delaware County Electric Cooperative (DCEC), sponsors a “Legislative Youth Tour” providing a selected youth-delegate the opportunity to travel to Washington D.C. to meet with our nations political leaders and learn about our Nation’s legislative process. This year the tour will take place from Sunday, April 18, 2021 to Wednesday, April 21, 2021.

Students interested in being considered for this event must complete the below application and have it submitted to the office of the Delaware County Electric Cooperative by the end-of-the-day on February 8, 2021. Applications can either be sent by regular mail or emailed to: alicia.vanzandt@dce.coop

Once applications are submitted there will be an interview conducted by the Board at the February 23rd Board Meeting.

Please be aware that DCEC is closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and continues to prioritize the health and safety of our members, staff and event participants. Local, state and national orders, recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and World Health Organization, travel industry guidance plus the number of participants and where they are coming from all inform our decisions regarding DCEC events. We are exploring options for rescheduling or offering virtual options for any canceled in-person events where such alternatives may make sense.
