In the Story of Your Success,

This is Chapter One
Find someone to help you grow

DeMolay Advisors are there to help mentor you as you progress in DeMolay, and in your life. They are positive role models who take a real interest in you. Advisors will help mentor you in your Chapter 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 every walk of life. They are united by the desire to help young men become the best version of themselves.

Help shape your community

DeMolay Chapters strive to become vital parts of their community. 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 total, charitable activities from DeMolays in 2018 created an impact of more than $790,000. DeMolays make a tremendously positive impact on their communities. By joining DeMolay, you become a part of that legacy of service.

Grow as a leader

DeMolays lead their Chapters. While adult Advisors are there to mentor DeMolays and make sure things go smoothly, they are not the ones who decide what the Chapter 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. As you grow in DeMolay, you might have the opportunity to lead more of your friends at the state level or even beyond. This experience can be vital in helping you prepare for success later in life and build confidence.

Have fun with your friends

Do the things you love with your friends! DeMolay Chapters follow their members’ interests and help you have more fun with your friends than you could alone. While no two Chapters will hold the exact same events, Chapters frequently do things like paintball, video game tournaments, sports, and more.  Get involved and start making memories that will last a life time. You control the content of your DeMolay Experience.

Get in Touch

Fill out the form to share your contact information by clicking the button at the bottom of the page. Your information will be sent to our local volunteer leaders, and they will reach out to you in the coming days. 

Meet DeMolays Near You

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

Officially Choose to Join

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

Join DeMolay

Once you’ve let them know that you are ready to join, your Chapter 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 DeMolay. There are two brief ceremonies which are usually done together, but may be done on separate days. We encourage you to bring your parents to these ceremonies. They are always welcome at any DeMolay event. 

Get Involved

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