Spokane County Young Marines
The Young Marines is a 501(c)3 non-profit youth education and service program for boys and girls, ages 8 through completion of high school.
The Young Marines promotes the mental, moral, and physical development of its members. The program focuses on character building, leadership, service to the community and Veteran's, and promotes a healthy, drug-free lifestyle.
- 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 affect on them. It is through these caring adults that Young Marines learn the inner values of Honor, Courage, and Commitment. Adult volunteers are individually screened by the National Headquarters based on background information and recommendations provided with each person's registration.
