GRICUA'S STEAAAMSUMMER PROGRAM
GRICUA hosted its third annual GRICUA STEAAAM Summer Program on June 24-28, 2019. GRICUA’s STEAAAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Agriculture, Architecture and Math) Summer Program offered students an environment to explore these diverse subjects.
GRICUA offers an opportunity for high school students who want to learn how an electric utility operates. The High School Intern(s) will rotate through various departments at GRICUA, learning about the tasks and responsibilities of the people who provide electric service to the Community.
GRICUA offers an opportunity for college students to learn about how an electric utility operates. The College Intern will rotate through various departments at GRICUA, learning about the tasks and responsibilities of the people who provide electric service to the Community.
The Washington Youth Tour, organized by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, brings over a thousand young people from across the United States to Washington, D.C. to learn more about community-owned electric utilities and the federal government.
