The co-op is searching for students who enjoy spending time planning projects, volunteering, and meeting others from across the state to apply.

The 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.

Coweta-Fayette EMC will send a delegation of up to two students and pay all expenses related to travel and the experience. Participants will join over 1,400 other high school students from around the nation who visit from towns and cities all over America for one incredible week in our nation’s capital.
