WHO WE ARE
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.
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.
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.
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: An individual's religious beliefs are their own. We encourage memgers to carry out their teaching while also respecting the views of others, no matter how different they may be from their own.
- Courtesy: A DeMolay is kind and courteous towards 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 respet and trust of everyone with whom they come in contact.
- Cleanness: Cleanness extends beyound 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.
