The Foundation for Rural Service, which jointly sponsors the Washington, D.C. Youth Tours with Endeavor Communications, is a nonprofit organization based in Arlington, Va., that serves rural communities across the United States. Established in 1994 by the National Telecommunications Cooperative Association, FRS educates the public about the benefits of a nationwide telecommunications network and promotes rural connectivity as an essential link in this network. FRS believes that rural communities— regardless of their size or location— deserve the same connection to the world as do residents of urban areas. Since its inception in 1995, the Youth Tour has hosted thousands of students from across the country. High school students who are 16–17 years old and whose parents have their primary residential telephone service with Endeavor may apply for the tour.
