At STRATA, we believe in investing in the future, so we strive to continually offer special opportunities for the youth in our communities to develop leadership skills and further their education.
Each year, STRATA provides financial assistance for local students pursuing higher education.
FRS Youth Tour to Washington, DC
Every summer, we have the privilege of sponsoring a group of high school students, ages 16-17, to attend the Foundations for Rural Service Tour in Washington D.C. While there, high school students across America learn more about rural telecommunications while exploring the nation's capital.
URECA Michael F. Peterson Youth Leadership Challenge
As a partner with other rural cooperatives across the state of Utah, we get the chance to sponsor a group of high school juniors to attend the URECA Youth Leadership Challenge at Snow College in Ephraim, Utah. Students learn leadership skills, meet other students from around the state, and learn about how cooperatives, like STRATA, function.
