Youth Programs

Wells Rural Electric Company places a high priority on improving the communities we serve. One of the ways we try to accomplish that goal is by providing support and opportunities to area youth.

Each summer, WREC takes students to statewide youth leadership conferences in Idaho and Utah. The conferences help students:

  • Develop their personal leadership skills
  • Learn about the co-op world
  • Enrich their cultural perspective.
  • Some campers go on to represent WREC at the NRECA’s Washington, D.C., Youth Leadership Tour.
