The Pennsylvania Youth Congress
Preston Heldibridle
State Policy Associate

Preston’s role in PYC centers around advocating for responsible LGBTQ policy in state government. A 2017 graduate of Dallastown Area High School in southern York County, his advocacy largely focuses on trans youth policy. Preston played a critical role in defeating a bill that would remove healthcare coverage for trans youth enrolled in the Children’s Healthcare Insurance Program (CHIP), a major victory for PYC. Currently, Preston is based in Harrisburg and continues doing essential policy work for our organization.
