Dec 6, 2022

Coweta-Fayette EMC is proud to offer the chance to apply for the 2023 Washington Youth Tour – available only for your high school juniors!

Coweta-Fayette EMC is now accepting applications for Georgia EMC’s 2023 Washington Youth Tour program, which will take place June 15-22, 2023, in Washington, D.C.

Coweta-Fayette EMC is offering a unique experience for students who are leaders in their high schools, communities, places of worship, or academic and community organizations through the Washington Youth Tour! The co-op is searching for students who enjoy spending time planning projects, volunteering, and meeting others from across the state to apply.

Washington Youth Tour is an opportunity for high school students to learn more about our nation’s capital alongside classmates and friends throughout Georgia. It is an all-expenses-paid trip on behalf of Georgia’s electric membership cooperatives (EMCs).

Once a year, high school students are selected by the electric cooperatives in Georgia to represent our state as delegates on the Washington Youth Tour. This top-notch leadership experience and tour of Washington, D.C., includes meetings with state and national leaders and leadership training, as well as visits to all the major sights.

Participants join over 1,400 other high school students from around the nation who visit every June, year after year, from towns and cities all over America for one incredible week in our nation’s capital. They come because their EMC’s think education is important — education about electric cooperatives and education about America.

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 involves a trip to the nation’s capital.
