The NREA JT&S Program is structured for the employees of NREA’s member-systems which emphasizes safe and productive work environments. The program is designed to communicate and instruct the latest JT&S techniques and methodologies that saves lives, reduces lost work time, and preserves member-system financial resources. Experienced JT&S instructors provide on-site training and safety techniques to all member-system employees in numerous areas and disciplines.
Each year member-systems of the NREA accept applications from area high school students to attend the NREA Youth Energy Leadership Camp at State 4-H Camp in the Halsey National Forest, usually the second week in July. The popular five-day camp gives young people a better understanding of the legislative process, electric power generation, and the rural electric program. The goal is to offer a program that challenges participants educationally, recreationally and socially. The Youth Energy Leadership Camp involves about 65 highly motivated high school-aged men and women from Nebraska, Wyoming, South Dakota and Colorado whose rural homes are served by one of the NREA's member-systems. The camp offers educational and recreational experiences, leadership training, environmental awareness, character building and social interaction.
