Review for Young Marines, Dumfries, VA, USA
The Young Marines National Youth Organization is hands down the BEST youth organization. We are the Only youth organization reaching and teaching DDR 24/7/365 in our communities. The YM program has enabled youth to build strong bonds in the Veteran community, never forgetting where we come from and the sacrifices that were made to get here. The YM's has a growth mindset by developing leaders by rank through leadership and responsibility. Our PT keeps us on the ready to perform not only physically but academically and in the field. SPACES program allows our YM's to meet and interact in a welcoming and supportive family environment, once a YM always a YM. As a non-profit we can fundraise and bring in sponsors to reach and open up more learning opportunities and provide financial assistance to families with multiple or underprivileged youth so that we can remain accessible to all youth. The YM program can be adapted to any learning style and focuses on the positive strengths while encouraging them to push through challenges. Our YM's Earn their uniform and are proud to wear their title, "Young Marines". The Young Marines has been a part of our family since 2010 with three of our children succeeding in the program and both my husband and I volunteer. This program and the children it touches is life changing. We would not be the same family without the Young Marines. Thanks to our Adult Volunteers, Young Marines, and Parents for continuing to support from the heart. Semper Fidelis.
