Each summer, Lumbee River EMC sponsors a student on the Youth Tour to Washington, D.C. Students learn about the capital, government, and rural electric cooperatives while seeing the area's historical and cultural sights. The tour brings more than 1,500 high school students nationwide to Washington, D.C. Participants make friends with other students from around the state and country, connections that last for many years.
The tour includes VIP visits to areas not viewed by the general public. Students also have a chance to meet their elected Congressional Representatives. The week is filled with fun and educational activities: your cooperative covers transportation, lodging, meals, and admissions.
The North Carolina Electric Cooperatives, Lumbee River EMC's statewide association, coordinates the program. Click Here for more information.
