The application period for the 2022 Youth Tour to Washington, D.C. is now open! CHEC is selecting one rising senior to represent us at next summer’s Youth Tour in June. Interested applicants can pick up an application in the CHSS guidance office or at the cooperative’s office in Buxton or download here.
Be a part of the 40+ outstanding high school students selected from electric cooperatives across the state to travel to our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C. This will be the first Youth Tour trip to D.C. since 2019, as COVID precautions prevented travel last year.
During the week-long trip, students will network with peers from across the country, meet members of congress, visit national museums and historic landmarks, and grow in confidence and friendships. Students will learn about electric cooperatives and help run their own “H20 Co-op,” where they can put the cooperative principles into practice.
As part of the Youth Tour experience, participants will have the opportunity to win one of three scholarships, including the prestigious Youth Leadership Council (YLC) Scholarship. In addition to the scholarship, the YLC designee will represent the state of North Carolina in an elite leadership-building program and on a national stage at the 2023 national annual meeting of electric cooperatives.
