EmPOWER Youth Leadership Program

Sioux Valley Energy has always been a proud supporter of education and we are excited to announce a new opportunity for high school sophomores and juniors—the EmPOWER Youth Leadership Program.  This program will provide a comprehensive understanding of cooperatives and will help students develop leadership skills.  We encourage students to ‘EmPOWER’ themselves and take advantage of this interactive and fun program that will allow them to explore career opportunities, network with other students and business leaders. There are opportunities to gain access to monetary leadership awards, scholarships and all-expense paid travel to Basin Electric power generation facilities in North Dakota and a week-long trip to Washington, D.C. The future success of electric cooperatives depends on the younger generation.  The goal for the youth leadership program is to ‘EmPOWER’ the students with the skill set of leadership to allow them to leave their own unique mark on the world. I believe we have a bright future as I have met many students that excel in the classroom and community.
