    The Young Marines is a program that focuses on Drug Demand

    Reduction, but also provides a mixture of exciting events,

    activities, training, encampments, and other developmental

    programs. Our unit meets every Saturday morning for 4 hours, in

    addition to our various events that are scheduled. We offer morethan any other youth program, due to our discipline based youth

    development system. We are not a "Boot Camp" program, but

    more a program to build off of your child's goals and motivation.

    We build confidence and personal courage by exercising

    leadership and speaking skills. We are not a recruiting tool forthe United States Marine Corps. We are a youth program that is

    sponsored by the Marine Corps League. Your child can be a part

    of the most outstanding leadership programs, travel to historical

    sites, and gain the self-confidence to achieve success. Building

    our Young Marines' skills and confidence are building the steps toAmerica's future. If you're looking for the perfect youth program

    for your child, well look no further

    You've found it in the Young Marines.

    RECRUIT TRAINING

    PROGRESS Our Recruit Training is always building itself

    Waiting on back-order guidebooks, can be

    found on www.youngmarines.com in site map

    We need parents to learn basic YM

    standards/expectations from Basic Young

    Marine Guidebook.

    Recruit Training is very intense discipline, and

    should not be confused with cub scouts.

    PARENT PARTICIPATION

    Your Young Marines/Recruits are only as

    strong as their parents participation is

    We are not capable of changing/molding a

    child's lifestyle in 4 hours each week

    Your interest and dedication will inspire

    your child's interest and dedication

    8 year olds are different than 16 year olds,

    and theres a lot of responsibility for them
