Youth Leadership Program

Youth Leadership Program

The Cobb EMC Youth Leadership Program gives current high school juniors the opportunity to develop leadership and networking skills, learn about their electric cooperative and earn scholarships. While learning about the co-op and making connections with other students, participants are also working to earn a spot on the Washington Youth Tour. The Youth Leadership Program offers six students the opportunity to earn a $1,500, $1,000 or $500 scholarship, along with an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C. and a paid student summer internship.
