INTERNATIONAL ORDER OF DeMOLAY

DeMolay is the premier youth organization dedicated to teaching young men to be better persons and leaders. Under the "advisorship" of adults; leadership skills, civic awareness, responsibility, and character development are learned through a variety of self directed, real world applications and activities.

DeMolay builds confidence; teaches responsibility, cooperation and community service; and fosters trust, respect, fellowship, patriotism, reverence, and sharing.

The Order of DeMolay was started over 80 years ago in Kansas City, Missouri.

DeMolay is a character building organization for young men who are twelve years of age and completed the 7th grade or who are 13 to 21 years of age.
In over 700 chapters throughout the United States, these young men have the opportunity to develop management, leadership and social skills as they participate in community projects, sports, and other educational programs.
DeMolay also has chapters in Canada, Brazil, Australia, Germany, Panama, Japan, Italy, and the Republic of the Philippines. More than one million young men have been members of DeMolay. Alumni members include John Wayne, Pete Rose, Walt Disney, Dan Rather, Willard Scott, Burl Ives, Ely Buendia, Joel Lamangan, Luke Mijares, Mike Orquillas and countless others.
