Masonic youth sponsorship - order of demolay
In 1992, the Square Club of the Fourth Masonic District of Manhattan, Inc. re-instituted Knickerbocker Chapter, Order of DeMolay, and has since then served as its sponsoring body.
DeMolay – the premier International youth leadership organization – strives to shape young men into leaders of character who hold themselves to a higher standard.
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.
Each young man takes ownership of his 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.
DeMolay is an inclusive organization that only asks of young men interested to believe in a higher being.
A high level of involvement and enthusiasm is far more important for success in DeMolay than any particular skill or ability.
