Now accepting applications for Georgia’s Electric Cooperative Youth Tour!

Feb 26, 2021

Coweta-Fayette EMC is now accepting applications for Georgia’s Electric Cooperative Youth Tour (YTGA) – a virtual leadership experience available for high school juniors! This year is going to be different, but we’re sure we can make it fun and valuable for students.

Coweta-Fayette EMC is looking to offer a unique experience for high school juniors who are leaders in their high schools, communities, places of worship, or academic and community organizations.

We’re searching for students who enjoy spending time planning projects, volunteering, and meeting others from across the state to apply.

For more than 50 years, electric cooperatives across Georgia have recognized outstanding high school students by providing a valuable leadership experience for exceptional teens through the Washington Youth Tour, which normally involves a trip to the nation’s capital.

In 2021, due to uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, we will offer a virtual Youth Tour in June, which is already shaping up to be an awesome experience.

We will select two delegates from the applicants to represent us on a three-day dynamic interactive experience that will focus each morning on different aspects of leadership – Leadership and Me, Leadership and My Community, Leadership and My Nation – and will include personality profiles, small group breakouts, photo contests, trivia challenges and more.

Do you know someone who is ready for new experiences in a quick-touch short-format three-morning program? Geared up to meet teens from across the state and network with young alumni of the program in leadership positions at college or in careers? Then encourage this student to apply for Georgia’s Electric Cooperative Youth Tour!

Apply by Tuesday, March 30, 2021, for a chance to win a pair of Apple AirPods or AirPods Pro! Additional information and applications are available online at
