America Loves the NRANRA Foundation Donations To Benefit NRA Youth Education Scholarships

FAIRFAX, Va. -( The NRA Foundation invites supporters to give the gift of Y.E.S. as part of this year’s #GivingTuesday campaign, scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 28, 2017.

All donations made to The NRA Foundation through on that day will directly benefit the NRA Youth Education Scholarship Fund and support future participants in the NRA Youth Education Summit (Y.E.S.), an expenses-paid, educational experience in Washington, D.C. each summer.

In 2018, Y.E.S. will grow to two, one-week sessions, scheduled for July 9–15 and July 23-29. This expansion doubles the number of students experiencing this life-changing program, developing into strong leaders in their communities, and competing for college scholarships.

The Youth Education Summit encourages young adults to become active citizens and leaders of tomorrow by learning about the Constitution and Bill of Rights, the Federal government and the importance of engaging in civic affairs.

Competitive team debates and casual current events discussions highlight the diverse backgrounds and beliefs of participants while fostering fellowship and respect.

The program’s nonstop agenda also includes exciting activities and opportunities, from meeting with members of Congress and visiting NRA headquarters to touring historic sites and monuments in the D.C. area and reflecting on the dedicated service of the nation’s military.

Through participation in the program’s events, students compete for $55,000 in college scholarships, which will be supported by #GivingTuesday donations. Say “Y.E.S.” on Nov. 28 and support tomorrow’s leaders!
