It’s time for Washington Youth Tour entries!
Once a year, Habersham EMC sends two local students to participate in the prestigious Washington Youth Tour. More than 1,500 students from all across America take part in this Youth Tour experience to learn about electric cooperatives, American History, U.S. Government and the importance of public service.
This all-expense paid trip will allow students the unique opportunity to see their nation’s capital up close, learn about the political process and interact with their elected officials. Duringthe Tour, students will explore museums, memorials and monuments, meet student leaders from across the country and further develop their own leadership qualities.
The Washington Youth Tour is Georgia’s oldest leadership program for teens and more than 50,000 students from rural and small towns across the nation have participated in this distinctive program since it began over 50 years ago. Habersham EMC has proudly participated in the program since 1999.
