Juniors - Apply to attend the MCEC Youth Tour to Washington DC

posted Nov 7, 2016, 7:09 AM by Amanda Stevens Stabler


The deadline for applications to be returned to MCEC is January 2nd and students must also interview on Tuesday, January 10, 2017 to be considered as a representative.

From MCEC:

The Electric Cooperative Youth Tour has brought high school students to Washington, D.C. every June since the late 1950s. Students compete for slots for this unique opportunity and are selected for this program by their local electric cooperative by submitting an application, then participating in an interview.

The featured speakers during National Youth Day provide insight to the important roles electric cooperatives play in their community. Students gain a personal understanding of American history and their role as a citizen through meeting their representatives and senators and exploring the sights around our nation’s capital. Don’t be surprised if you run into a former Youth Tour participant who is a congressional aide on Capitol Hill. Several alums work in Washington.


​More information and a link to the application can be found on the MCEC website:

Paid Internships through Boys & Girls Club of the Midlands

posted Aug 10, 2016, 5:06 AM by Amanda Stevens Stabler

Boys & Girls Clubs is looking for part-time employees to work in their after school programs in elementary and middle schools in Richland, Lexington, Newberry, Kershaw and Fairfield counties. 

These positions will be hands on with kids under the supervision of an adult. Successful candidates will be passionate about working with kids. This opportunity is ideal for young adults interested in youth development as a career choice. We have shifts from two to five days per week from 2:30 to 5:30 pm.

Pay starts at minimum wage, but after a 30 day probation period, employees will have the opportunity to enroll in our nationally recognized apprenticeship program and which will allow them to learn youth development skills at their own pace while earning more pay. 

Employees can increase their hourly wage by up to $1.50 more in a year by completing the youth development trainings we offer in partnership with Midlands Tech. Typically the trainings take about one hour per week to complete so they are not too taxing on students.

Interested candidates should complete the attached application and return to Miles Johnson, Director of Teen Services, at mjohnson@bgcmidlands.org (803.237.6839).
