PONY CLUB'S INSIDE TURNS

2015 National USPC Youth Congress
USPC
What is the National USPC Youth Congress (NYC)? The NYC is USPC's way of recognizing outstanding H-B through A Pony Club members and providing them with an extraordinary opportunity for growth and development through a national conference of approximately 40 youth members and up to 5 outstanding Pony Club alumni. The NYC Program takes place each year the two days prior to the USPC Annual Meeting. The Program consists of group discussions, presentations and interaction with Pony Club Alumni, networking, etc. for youth members and alumni. The NYC culminates in the Honors Banquet at which the outstanding alumni are inducted into the USPC Academy of Achievement.

The NYC provides numerous benefits for the selected Pony Club members. It rewards them for leadership in their clubs/regions by giving them opportunities to network with others who share their love of and experience with horses. It exposes them to wider experiences outside of Pony Club by introducing them to outstanding alumni from all walks of life. It gives them opportunities to develop leadership skills through participation in a national forum. All lodging (3 nights) and meals (2 days) will be provided for youth delegates for the two days of the Youth Congress. Transportation will not be provided.

Youth delegates to the NYC must be nominated by their clubs and selected by their Regions based on the following criteria:

Youth delegates
  • Must be members in good standing of a member club of USPC in the current year
  • Must embody the qualities mentioned in the USPC Mission Statement
  • Must hold an H-B/C+ or higher National Certification
  • Must be 18 years or older by Jan. 1, when NYC takes place
  • Must demonstrate leadership and volunteerism
  • Must be outstanding outside of Pony Club
