Parents Rave about the Development!

DeMolay is a way that your young man will have a wonderful time, while learning important life lessons to become a better adult. Some parents talk about the high quality friendships gained, extraordinary experiences, and genuine fun they see their child enjoying. Others are enthused by the vast support their child receives during their development, extensive scholarship and other resources available, and the important qualities they develop through DeMolay. Whether your goal is to expand your child’s exposure to the greatness in our world, help your child drive towards being a better human, or just hope that they have fun:

WHO IS DEMOLAY?

We are the premier organization based on timeless principles, committed to developing and inspiring leadership, team building, and networking for young men ages 12 – 21. We strive to not only create leaders, but extraordinary leaders of character.

OUR MISSION

DeMolay, the premier international youth leadership organization, striving to shape young men into leaders of character. By epitomizing timeless values, and accepting the challenge of leadership – both of character and of action – the young men of DeMolay transform themselves into citizens of the highest caliber.

OUR APPROACH

With thousands of members worldwide, our approach is simple: give them the tools to lead, and the guidance to succeed.

Our success over the past one hundred years wasn’t due to just sheer coincidence. Our members take ownership of their DeMolay experience. From generating ideas, planning events, coordinating logistics, and executing their plans, each DeMolay Chapter is responsible for defining their success. All of this is accomplished under the mentorship of trained Advisors, selected from the local community, enabling each Chapter to be uniquely tailored to support the interests of its members.

OUR PRECEPTS

The Order of DeMolay teaches seven core values, which we call cardinal virtues, as the basis of good character.

Filial Love

One of the great lessons of DeMolay is the lesson of filial love. DeMolay members cherish their parents and hold family teachings close to their hearts. Our members strive to repay the love and care of their parents through kindness and civility. 

Reverence for Sacred Things

An individual’s religious beliefs are their own. We encourage our members to carry out their teachings while also respecting the views of others, no matter how different they may be from their own.

Courtesy

A DeMolay is kind and courteous toward others. Not only in public, but also at home and among friends.

Comradeship

Comradeship binds our members together so they may build a lifelong brotherhood. To be a friend is one of the highest honors, but being a brother involves strong ties of loyalty and trust. 

Fidelity

Fidelity means faithful and loyal to all of our obligations in life. By being faithful, our members earn the respect and trust of everyone with whom they come in contact. 

Cleanness

Cleanness extends beyond physical hygiene. It encompasses being purposeful with our words, careful of our actions, and respectful with our thoughts. 

Patriotism

DeMolay encourages each member to be patriotic towards his country and mindful of those who serve to protect it. Whether through service or by being an exemplary citizen. 

BEYOND BORDERS

We are truly a brotherhood without borders, with members from all over the world.

There are hundreds of thousands of members, advisors, alumni members and supporters worldwide. While the DeMolay program is International, every member belongs to a Chapter, which is close in proximity to their location. It is our Chapters that host fun events, fundraisers, charity drives and much more to impact their communities!
