|What is DeMolay?
(As stated in the "DeMolay Leader's Resource Guide")
The Order of DeMolay is the premier leadership training organization for young men between the ages of 12 and 21.
DeMolay was founded in 1919 in Kansas City,
Missouri. The original group of nine young men has grown to more than
1,000 Chapters and 1,000,000 young men have enjoyed the DeMolay
experience. Today, DeMolays know that wherever they travel, they will
not be far from a DeMolay Chapter.
Strong new feelings of independence and
self-determination well up inside a young man between 12 and 21 years
-A need to test boundaries...and abilities
-A time to think about destiny...and dignity
-A time to take charge of one's own fate
-Young men need to have fun and socialize with others
Some famous men have benefitted from involvement in
DeMolay, including Gary Collins, Paul Harvey, John Wayne, Walt Disney,
Dan Rather, and many others. At a critical time in life, each one of
these men (and thousands of other great leaders) shared the values,
dedication, and self-enrichment that are part of the order of DeMolay.
And, all shared in its fun.
This has lead to many questions over the years,
"Does DeMolay lay the foundation for such greatness, or does it just
attract those destined for greatness?" Either way, isn't it something
you'd like to be associated with?
DeMolay strongly encourages original thinking,
creative planning, responsible decision-making and cooperative action.
DeMolay provides you with the atmosphere that gives you the chance to
succeed...as well as the freedom to make mistakes and learn from them.
