Youth Tour

Each year, CFEC sends 6 high school juniors on an all-expenses paid tour of the state capital in Tallahassee. Three of the students from this group are later chosen to travel to Washington D.C. During the Youth tour, these CFEC juniors meet around 2,000 other students representing Co-ops throughout the United States. The Youth Tour exposes students to new opportunities, teaches them about the cooperative business model and their democratic government. These students are selected from Dixie, Gilchrist and Levy counties. To be eligible to apply, students must have CFEC as their electric provider. For more information on the youth tour, download the application attached below. Applicants can submit their application via email or turn it in to their guidance counselor.

I had the chance to learn about my nation's history firsthand and pay my respects to some of our fallen heroes.
