Washington Youth Tour
All expense paid trip to Washington, D.C.
Typically, Diverse Power sends high school students as delegates on the Washington Youth Tour each June. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Youth Tour has been canceled. Candidates selected for the 2020 weeklong leadership tour will now attend the 2021 trip. No new applications will be accepted for the upcoming year.
Applications for the 2022 Youth Tour will be accepted in the fall of 2021. Please check back for additional information and updates.
Diverse Power will sponsor three local high school students on an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C. The three students, along with other participants from around the state, will begin the tour in June, 2022 and will conclude the tour with their arrival back in Atlanta.
The tour is an excellent chance for the students to see the Capitol of our nation, as well as meet other high school students from around the country. It is an opportunity to learn about our government and the history of our nation – all this for free! Please review the enclosed entry rules and guidelines. If you have any questions, please contact our office at 706-845-2000, extension 347.
School administrators are encouraged to make as many copies as needed to distribute to schools and students within your system.
