In the Story of Your Success,

This is Chapter One

To join a DeMolay Chapter, you have to be 12 years old. However, just because you are under 12 does not mean you can’t start your DeMolay Experience now. You can join the Order of Squires, an organization for young men between 9 and 11, which functions very similarly to a DeMolay Chapter. Squire Manors often participate in activities with DeMolay Chapters near them, but they hold their own meetings and are led by their own members. Once they turn 12, most Squire members decide to join DeMolay and continue their DeMolay Experience.

Find someone to help you grow

Squires Advisors are there to help mentor you as you grow up. They are positive role models who take a real interest in you. Advisors will help mentor you in your Manor and whenever else you might need it – whether that’s with school, finding a job, or in your relationships with other people. The Advisors, who will become your mentors, come from many different backgrounds. They are united by the desire to help you become the best version of yourself.

Help shape your community for the better

Squire Manors strive to become vital parts of their community. Like DeMolay Chapters, they often volunteer and raise money for worthy causes. In recent years, Chapters have raised money for medical research, volunteered to help at local hospitals, and served the underprivileged in their communities. In 2018, DeMolays created a charitable impact of more than $790,000. DeMolays make a huge positive impact on their communities. By becoming a Squire, you become a part of that legacy of service.

Grow as a leader

Squire Manors are led by their members. While adult Advisors are there to mentor Squires and make sure things go smoothly, they are not the ones who decide what the Manor does. As part of your DeMolay Experience, you get the chance to explore your leadership potential in a low-pressure environment, where your friends and Advisors are helping you to succeed. This experience can give you confidence and prepare you for your future.

Meet Squires Near You

When our local volunteer leaders reach out to you, they will try to find a time for you to come to a Manor event near you. While you’re there, meet Squires near you and find out more about Squires. Make sure you’re comfortable and that the environment is a good fit for you. 

Officially Choose to Join

After you’ve attended a Manor event and met some of the people involved with Squires near you, you can officially decide to join a Manor. Get your parents’ permission and then let your local Manor know that you are ready to join.

Join a Manor

Once you’ve let them know that you are ready to join, your Manor will set up a time for you to go through the ceremonies that will teach you about the values we teach and officially make you a Squire. There is a brief ceremony to become a Squire. We encourage you to bring your parents to this ceremony. They are always welcome at any DeMolay event. 

Get Involved

Start having fun with the members of your Manor, finding your mentors, and making an impact on your community! Your DeMolay Experience is what you make it!
