Pennsylvania YES provides youth attendees with an opportunity to gain a hands-on education of the history of Pennsylvania and the democratic process. The program is designed help youth develop: an awareness and desire to participate in Pennsylvania government; an appreciation and knowledge of the history and unique heritage of Pennsylvania; an understanding of volunteer networks and how young citizens can serve their communities; and an understanding of the history, mission and programs of the NRA.

Friends of the NRA banquet proceeds cover nearly all costs for those youth attending Pennsylvania YES.
