2020 Washington Youth Tour & Cooperative Youth Summit Teacher/Guidance Counselor Chaperone Application

Calling all South Carolina high school teachers and guidance counselors! You could be selected for one of these two unforgettable experiences.

On the Washington Youth Tour, explore Washington, D.C. with 1,600 high school juniors from across the country, meeting lawmakers and touring all the sights. South Carolina's electric co-ops will cover your round-trip plane ticket, tours and meals. In other words, It’s all free!

On the Cooperative Youth Summit, experience South Carolina’s capital like never before. Tour the Statehouse, meet lawmakers and see how co-ops are preparing for our state’s energy future. Plus, there’s plenty of fun with visits to popular Columbia attractions like Riverbanks Zoo & Garden.

To apply to be a chaperone for one or both trips, you must be a current high school teacher or guidance counselor.  If you are selected, South Carolina's electric cooperatives will pay for your transportation, hotel room, exhibit admissions, and three meals per day for the week-long trip.

Deadline for applications is Friday, January 31, 2020.
