WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A DEMOLAY
The Order of DeMolay has taken the virtues and best values from ancient chivalry and translated them into modem concepts and uses. The purpose is to help make you a better son today and a better leader, father and citizen tomorrow.
DeMolay supports the home, the public schools and the free practice of religion. Today's DeMolay program builds leaders and young men who:
See themselves honestly.
See what they want in life and set goals.
Are strong enough to follow through on a plan.
Express themselves sincerely.
Plan ahead for their activities.

Best of all, you will control your own destiny as a Chapter member. You, and young men like you, will run the Chapter, including social, athletic, civic and fund-raising activities. Along the way, you’ll discover things about yourself that you will use the rest of your life.
You will learn to look at your DeMolay membership card as a passport to a worldwide brotherhood. A new world of responsibility, challenge and fun is open to you.
