There are currently 14 units in the state of Pennsylvania. The Laurel Highlands Young Marines has served Windber and the surrounding area since 2002. The adult staff is all volunteer and consists of YM family members, members from all different professions within the community, and veterans. 

In the Laurel Highlands Young Marines, youth receive opportunities to build their pride and leadership skills through such challenging events as: rappelling; intense physical fitness training; camping; close order drill; swimming; land navigation and many other activities. They get opportunities to earn promotions and ribbons through their achievements as they develop their skills.
