Washington Youth Tour
Annually OREMC sponsors students to participate in the National Washington Youth Tour, a week-long leadership experience in our nation’s capital. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the 2021 trip has been canceled, but five students participated in the OREMC Youth Tour June 14-18. This all expenses paid trip focused on connecting students with cooperative and cultural heritage history, meeting with government representatives, team building and of course, FUN!
Details on the 2022 Youth Tour plans will be forthcoming in the coming months. All students who are currently enrolled as a junior in high school within OREMC’s eight county service area—Brantley, Camden, Charlton, Glynn, Ware and Wayne counties in Georgia and Baker and Nassau Counties in Florida—are invited to apply. Interested students must submit a completed application attach two letters of recommendation and a short essay explaining why they are interested in the Youth Tour experience. Application deadline March 25. Applications can also be picked up at one of our office locations or mailed to you at your request.
We look forward to receiving your application. If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Dewayne Johns at 800-262-5131 ext. 1143 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Georgia EMC-sponsored Coaches’ Corners provide a respite for team coaches to relax and refresh during these events.
