ABOUT THE YOUNG MARINES

The Young Marines is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 youth education program for boys and girls ages 8 through high school. The program focuses on character building through a combination of self-discipline, teamwork and leadership, and promotes a healthy, drug-free lifestyle. The Young Marines is the official youth program of the U.S. Marine Corps and the focal point of the Marine Corps' Youth Drug Demand Reduction efforts. The Greater Lake County Young Marines was formed in 2004.
