Wood County Electric Cooperative also participate in programs directed at developing community youth. The East Texas Rural Electric Youth Seminar (ETREYS) program, , trains high school students in leadership skills. And the Rural Electric Youth Tour sends more than a thousand high school students to Washington, D.C. every year, including young people from communities in our service area. Sadly, both of these have been cancelled for 2021, due to the pandemic. As soon as it is safe to do so, we plan to resume them.
