Youth Tour is a once-in-a-lifetime, all-expenses-paid leadership travel opportunity. From the halls of Congress to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, youth tourists will explore the leadership lessons of our nation’s history and be immersed in the cooperative principles that define Tideland EMC.
While on Youth Tour, all transportation, meals, admissions to events and lodging will be arranged and paid for by Tideland.
What are we looking for in a Youth Tour candidate? We’re looking for someone who is outgoing and has a demonstrated ability to work well with others. With nearly 1,600 young people from across the country participating in the event, we’re looking for candidates eager to form new friendships, exchange ideas and find their own voice about the things they care about.
The Youth Tour dates for 2022 are June 18 through June 24. Applications must be received by Tideland EMC no later than January 21 and a winner(s) will be selected by January 31.
To apply, students must reside in a home served by Tideland EMC and must currently be a high school sophomore or junior.
