Battle River Power Coop Sponsorship & Alberta’s Community & Co-operative Association (ACCA) Youth Leadership Program

Battle River Power Coop recognizes the importance of involving youth in the co-operative model and is proud to offer two sponsorships annually that are available to children of members.

The ACCA’s Leadership Program takes place every summer at the Goldeye Center near Nordegg, Alberta. Under trained, adult leadership, young people have an opportunity to develop communication, leadership, and teamwork skills, in addition to building their independence and confidence. It’s a great opportunity to have fun and make long-lasting friendships. For more information on the various programs, visit

ACCA has announced that the 2021 Summer Co-operative Youth Leadership Program has been canceled. They are optimistic that they will be able to hold the Co-operative Youth Program in 2022. Battle River Power Coop is hopeful the summer 2022 camp will proceed, as these programs are important in introducing youth to the values of the cooperative model.

A Message From ACCA Co-operative Youth Program
Regarding the ACCA Co-operative Youth Leadership 2023 Program

For the last 63 years, the ACCA Co-operative Youth Leadership Program has been educating thousands of youth from western Canada. The program has instilled co-operative values, the importance of community & giving back, and agriculture in our society. As well as helping participants develop public speaking & team-building skills & helping them recognize their strengths while making lifelong friendships.

Due to increasing costs, we will not hold any youth programs in 2023.
