WELCOME TO THE NATION'S ONLY ALL-INCLUSIVE AND FASTEST GROWING COMPETITIVE SHOOTING SPORTS PROGRAM FOR YOUTH IN 5TH GRADE THROUGH COLLEGE.
To All Our Volunteers at USAYESS,
As we roll up 2017, and enter the 2018 season, we would like to thank all our volunteers for supporting USAYESS, and all that you do for youth.
When we think of volunteers we think of time and values. In our lives, one thing we cannot create, accumulate, acquire, buy or even borrow, is time. We have a limited amount of time for sleep, work, family and our own interests. Therefore, an individual’s time is a very precious commodity, and should never be taken for granted.
When an individual commits themselves to volunteer on a consistent basis, they have chosen to give up their own time to support an activity to benefit others. This brings us to values. Some of the strongest values, service and sacrifice are shown when one places the needs of another above their own. You have chosen to give up your personal time and energy and expend it to help others. We are greatly thankful for this.
USAYESS volunteers are constantly volunteering hand-in-hand in a variety of ways so that youth have the opportunity to learn about safe firearm handling, competitive shooting, outdoor activities, wildlife conservation, and become productive citizens. Every task done by you is an important contribution to making this happen. Your commitment and support are greatly appreciated and will never be taken for granted.
We express this with humbleness and gratitude, and sincerely thank you for helping make USAYESS the successful program it has become.

The Road to Responsible Firearm Ownership interactive tool can be found here: http://www.projectchildsafe.org/safety/safety-resources/roadtoresponsibility and will help guide you through key steps towards safe ownership.
