Youth Tour

Each year, Jones-Onslow EMC joins with other electric cooperatives across the state and nation to sponsor the Electric Cooperative Youth Tour. This annual trip allows exceptional high school students to experience the sites of Washington, D.C.

While in D.C., participants will have a chance to meet with North Carolina’s elected officials and discuss the critical issues back home, learn about the cooperative business model, visit historic monuments, memorials, and various Smithsonian museums. Undoubtedly, Youth Tour has grown into an invaluable program that gives young leaders an experience that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.

Youth Tour delegates will be selected based on the completion of an application and a short essay.
