Leadership Programs

Cooperative Youth Leadership Conference

Each year Tri-County EMC selects a student to attend the Georgia Cooperative Council's Youth Leadership Conference, a three day event held each July at the FFA Camp in Covington. Participants develop leadership skills while learning about the role of cooperatives. Tri-County EMC covers all conference fees for participating youth.

Through teambuilding exercises, personality assessments and an in-depth look into the cooperatives, the conference provides leadership training for participants, explores the cooperative way of doing business and heightens awareness of cooperatives in Georgia. Participants also have the opportunity to enjoy horseback riding, canoeing and swimming.
