Youth & Community
Special Olympics Oklahoma
More than 140 volunteers from electric cooperatives across Oklahoma participate each year in the Oklahoma Special Olympics Summer State Games in Stillwater, Okla. For more than 27 years co-op employees, directors, managers and retirees have volunteered with Special Olympics, typically making up one of the largest volunteer groups at the games.
YouthPower Energy Camp is designed to help develop leadership skills, have summertime fun, and at the same time learn about one of rural America’s most important industries – rural electrification.
The Oklahoma Rural Electric Youth Tour is an annual, weeklong, all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C. that is open to select high school juniors (seniors-to-be) who attend schools located in co-op service areas.
