Each year, JOEMC sponsors four rising high school seniors on the Rural Electric Youth Tour. The program, which helps young people learn about cooperatives and the co-op way of doing business, allows the youth to grow in ways we hope will benefit our com- munity. Many past participants have used their experiences to provide leadership when returning to their schools and communities.
Jones-Onslow’s Youth Tour representatives will be chosen through an essay contest with a pre-selected topic. A representative from Jones-Onslow will be visiting local high schools during the month of January to promote the contest.
You can also call the cooperative office at (910) 353-1940 and speak with the cooperative’s youth tour coordinator, Paula Redick, or send her an email.
