BECOME A VOLUNTEER
Young Marines units are community-based programs lead by dedicated adult volunteers. Many of these volunteers are former, retired, active duty, or reserve Marines who believe passionately that the values they learned as Marines had a positive effect on them. Though many of our volunteers have prior military experience, it is not required to become a volunteer with the Young Marines.
The Young Marines mission of positively impacting America’s future by providing quality youth development programs for boys and girls cannot be achieved without our team of dedicated adult volunteers. It is through these caring adults that our Young Marines learn the inner values of Honor, Courage, and Commitment.
They volunteer their time and effort to pass these values on to the youth in their respective communities before other destructive influences take root.
Once you have decided to become an Adult Volunteer, simply fill out the Volunteer Adult Application, submit that application to our Unit Commander who will then endorse the application and send it to Young Marines National Headquarters in Washington, D.C. for approval. All adult volunteers are screened by the National Headquarters based on recommendations and a background investigation performed by National Center for Safety Initiatives (NCSI).
