The Youth Education Summit (Y.E.S.) is currently accepting chaperone applications.  The 2016 Y.E.S. program will take place July 25 - July 31. Chaperones must have attended Y.E.S. in the summer of 2013 or prior. Individuals chosen to be chaperones will have free airfare, hotel and meals. Don't miss this exciting opportunity to lead others through this wonderful week and experience it again for yourself!
The deadline for applications is March 1, 2016.  Please send a request for an application to or call 1-800-672-3888, press 7, and ask to be connected to extension 1351.

To apply, students must first attend National Y.E.S. After attending, students have nine months to work on a Grand Scholarship application where they develop a portfolio that communicates the NRA programs they’ve introduced to their community and the impact those programs made. Students present their Y.E.S. experience to local youth clubs and schools, volunteer at Friends of NRA banquets and many students establish Eddie Eagle GunSafe programs in their communities.

All 2015 Y.E.S. alumni are encouraged to apply for the Grand Scholarship!   The deadline is April 30, 2016. Should you have further questions, please email or call 1-800-672-3888 ext. 1351.
