Southern Illinois Cooperative Youth Conference

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 2021 conference will be June 24 on the Southern Illinois University campus in Carbondale.
