The Electric Cooperatives of Mississippi, a member cooperative consisting of 26 electric cooperatives across the state, offer a statewide Youth Leadership Program. The program is designed to provide participants with an opportunity to learn about electric power associations, how and why cooperatives operate, and how electricity is distributed, in addition to sharpening their leadership skills. North East Mississippi EPA is a proud participant of the Youth Leadership Program.
The participants are juniors chosen through an interview process coordinated through high schools in our service area. For more information about the Youth Tour Program, contact Tracie Russell at North East Mississippi Electric Power Association.
