The Illinois Cooperative Council hosts a two-day youth conference for high school students. During the event, students learn about the cooperative principles and tour local cooperative businesses while staying on campus and getting a taste of college life. Students also participate in hands-on activities that teach how cooperative businesses work in a variety of sectors.

Generous sponsors support the conference by supplying room and board for the students attending.

The 2018 conference will be June 7-8 on the Southern Illinois University campus in Carbondale.
