Get Ready to Fly: TSA PreCheck Enrollment Event in West Chester

Steven's Wings: Global Youth Adventures

WEST CHESTER, PASteven’s Wings: Global Youth Adventures will host a TSA PreCheck® enrollment event in collaboration with IDEMIA, an authorized enrollment provider. From June 24 to June 28, travelers can enroll at 1244 West Chester Pike, Suite 409, West Chester, PA 19382.

The program is available to U.S. citizens, nationals, and lawful permanent residents. The enrollment process is quick and convenient. Completing the application online beforehand speeds it up even more. In-person enrollment requires proof of identity, proof of citizenship, fingerprints, and a photo. IDEMIA charges $78 for TSA PreCheck enrollment, which provides a five-year membership if approved.

Most applicants receive their Known Traveler Number (KTN) within three to five days after the appointment. The KTN must be added to flight reservations to enjoy TSA PreCheck benefits.

Created in December 2011, TSA PreCheck offers low-risk travelers a faster airport security experience. Enrolled members do not need to remove shoes, laptops, 3-1-1 liquids, belts, or light jackets. They also access dedicated screening lanes at over 200 U.S. airports nationwide.

Steven’s Wings: Global Youth Adventures is also launching a special fundraising initiative during this event. Each donation made enters the donor into a raffle for a three-piece Samsonite luggage set. All proceeds support the Passport Discovery Initiative, which helps economically disadvantaged youth obtain passports to explore the world.

“By participating in this TSA PreCheck enrollment event and contributing to our fundraiser, you’re not only enhancing your travel experience but also opening up a world of possibilities for young adventurers,” said Erica Wright, Executive Director at Steven’s Wings: Global Youth Adventures.

Steven’s Wings: Global Youth Adventures is a nonprofit founded in memory of Steven, a dedicated nurse and Navy veteran who served selflessly after Desert Storm. He continued his commitment to helping others in hospitals throughout Philadelphia until his untimely death from pancreatic cancer in 2017. Inspired by Steven’s dedication to service and mentorship, his sister, Erica Wright, established the organization to empower underserved youth through educational and transformative travel experiences. Their programs aim to enhance global awareness and develop future leaders by providing access to new cultures and learning opportunities.
