The Puget Sound Detachment is Proud to Sponsor the Seattle Young Marines
Who are the Young Marines
The Young Marines is a 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, and promotes a healthy, drug-free lifestyle.
The Young Marines is the focal point for the U.S. Marine Corps' Youth Drug Demand Reduction efforts and is an Official Program of the Marine Corps League.
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. 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 Young Marines National Headquarters based on background information and recommendations provided with each person's registration.
You do NOT have to be military or prior military to be an Registered Adult.
Parents are encouraged to register, so they can participate with their kids.
