My sons have been involved with DeMolay in West Bend, WI as members (from ages 12 to 21) of this organization. When young men are given the chance to make a difference, and offered positive reinforcement for "doing good things" it DOES matter to them. Their advisors always respected them, encouraged them, and helped them to do more as leaders of the group. As a capstone to their involvement (after learning leadership, speaking and organizational skills as participants) each boy earned scholarships for college. The scholarships are generous, and the experience that they gained from being involved with DeMolay has helped them to become more responsible, professional, effective adults. I would encourage parents to have their sons look at the DeMolay program - in Wisconsin or any community across the country.
