Washington Youth Tour

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).

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. In 2021, due to uncertainty surrounding COVID- 19, we offered a virtual Youth Tour in June, but Washington, D.C. is “open” and NRECA plans to move forward with an in-person Washington Youth Tour in June 2022! Apply now through March 18, 2022.
