Penn's Civilians was created by former Nittany Lion Rick Sayles in 2002 to provide academic and social support to urban youth. It began with a pilot program at Steelton Highspire High and has been growing with the help of the Penn State sports community. They currently provide programs in Harrisburg and State College, and organizers hope to bring Penn's Civilians to other communities throughout the state.

Tickets to this amazing event are $100. Make checks payable to Penn's Civilians Educational Organization and mail to:
