What is the Washington Youth Tour?
Every June, as many as 1,500 high school students from across the country, with over 100 of those being from Georgia, spend a week in the nation's capital as part of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Youth Tour. The students are sponsored by electric cooperatives – cooperatives that are committed to educating America's rural youth about America and the role electric cooperatives play in developing strong rural communities. As part of this commitment, Canoochee EMC will be sending four responsible high school juniors.
Participating in the Youth Tour is an awesome way to learn about this great nation, develop leadership skills, gain a better understanding of electric cooperatives, and make friendships that will last beyond the week!
