Youth Leadership Conference

The annual Wisconsin Energy Cooperative Association (WECA) Youth Leadership Conference (YLC) is a dynamic three-day event for youth leaders from across Wisconsin to develop their leadership skills while learning about the purpose, operation, and scope of cooperative businesses. YLC has been held each summer since 1963. Attendees join other students from across the state to participate in this premier youth program.

The conference has a range of leadership, team building, learning, and recreational activities. The Cooperative Youth Board assists in planning and presenting the YLC program. This makes the YLC a unique and effective opportunity for young adults to have fun while learning.

Students stay in the campus dorms during this 3 day/2 night event. There is entertainment in the evenings, students are busy from early morning until late evening throughout the event.

Oconto Electric Cooperative selects high school students each year who will attend YLC. OEC pays for registration, provides transportation to and from the conference and has chaperones on campus at all times.
