Youth Tour is an all-expenses paid, once-in-a-lifetime chance for youth to bond with fellow students, meet elected officials and experience our nation's capital. More than 1,500 students from all across America take part in the Youth Tour experience each year. This unique trip gives the opportunity to watch history come alive as they explore museums, memorials and monuments with other students. Some of the stops for the trip may include the Newseum, Arlington National Cemetery, Mount Vernon, Iwo Jima Sunset Parade, National Cathedral, Madame Tussauds' Wax Museum, Smithsonian, National Zoo, a Kennedy Center production, the Holocaust Museum and a Potomac River Boat Cruise.


Teens will meet student leaders from nearly every state and hear from dynamic speakers. They will make friendships that last a lifetime and be part of a group that has more than 50,000 alumni in every walk of life, including U.S. Senators and CEOs.
