Youth Leadership Organization for Young Men ages 12 – 21.
Youth Leadership Organization for Young Men ages 9 – 11.
An opportunity to help develop and mentor young men to be leaders.
DeMolay taught me the importance of public service and gave me the opportunity to help support my community. Going out with my brothers to raise money for charities or support local events was very important for me as a young man. I met many good, new people along the way, and it's how I became a real part of my community for the first time.
Having joined DeMolay late, at the age of 18, I jumped in with both feet. The DeMolay program provided me something that I wasn't getting anywhere else. It outlined a system of personal growth and provided ample opportunity to apply what I learned as a leader. All of the doors in my life, both personal and professional, have been opened because of DeMolay.
As a young man at age 13 being mentored by my advisors, DeMolay gave me a sense of belonging and taught me about friendship, leadership, and giving back to the community; this was in addition to the values I learned at home. These lessons gave me the additional building blocks that I needed to have a successful career, understand the importance of supporting your community, and have strong family values. As an adult and now DeMolay advisor, I have the opportunity to pass along these lessons of success to our future generations while watching them grow lasting friendships. DeMolay has meant a lot to me… I am proud to be a Sr DeMolay and advisor for my local chapter.
DeMolay is the village that helped my son become the man he is today. There were unlimited opportunities for him to gain experience in building relationships both personal and professional, as well as project planning and time management. He had peer mentors and adult advisors who were always there to guide and assist him. He made friends that have continued into his adult life. Because of DeMolay, he is a better son, friend, coworker and citizen.
