Washington Youth Tour

The Cobb EMC Youth Leadership Program gives current high school juniors the opportunity to develop leadership and networking skills, learn about their electric cooperative and earn scholarships. While learning about the co-op and making connections with other students, participants are also working to earn a spot on the Washington Youth Tour. The Youth Tour offers students a $1,500, $1,000 and two $500 scholarships, along with four all-expenses-paid trips to Washington, D.C. and one paid student summer internship.
