We are constantly seeking out men and women who love youth, are committed to their development, and have time and talents to invest in their growth. Masonic leaders, Senior members of DeMolay, parents, grandparents, and community leaders are all welcome additions to the DeMolay adult leadership team. We seek adults with a variety of personalities, skills, and life experiences to provide our young men with role models and guides for their continuing pursuit of success. In addition, our youth deserve a safe place to grow and learn.
Pennsylvania DeMolay is committed to providing our members with quality adult mentors for their DeMolay experience. It is our desire to protect both our youth and our adult volunteers from any real or perceived abusive situations, and to provide for positive interactions for all.
