Masonic Youth Association 

As you are no doubt aware, the Masonic Youth Association is a 501(c) (3) corporation. Incorporated under the laws of the State of Florida as a charitable corporation, all contributions are tax deductible. Since it's inception, this association has helped to support State Associations of our Masonic Youth. All Lodges, Appendant Bodies, clubs and groups, as well as each of us individually are encouraged to contribute and support this worthwhile organization in every way we can.

Boy Scout Eagle, Girl Scout Gold and Silver Awards

A Grand Lodge Certificate may be presented to the recipients of these honors. When possible, these certificates should be presented in the Particular Lodges during a Special Communication or it would also be appropriate to suspend labor during a Regular or Stated Communication for this program and ceremony. It is also suggested that you find out from your local Scout Masters when they have their "Court of Honor" and attend that for the purpose of presenting the awards. Certificates should be presented by the District Deputy Grand Master, or Zone or District Chairman of the Masonic Youth Activities Committee. Certificates are available from the State Chairman.

Youth Recognition Award

Each Particular Lodge should plan a night with a youth group; Rainbow, Job's Daughters, DeMolay, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Little League, etc., ask them to present to the Lodge a program of their own and then present them with a Grand Lodge Certificate of Recognition. A Particular Lodge may want to present that youth group with a donation which would be appropriate and most certainly appreciated. A Grand Lodge Certificate of Appreciation is also awarded to that Particular Lodge having the program. Number one above could be combined with this part of the program.

Youth Activities Scolarship Award

A scholarship in the amount of $500.00 will be awarded to a member of each Masonic Youth Group. The recipient will be chosen by their State Leaders according to their guidelines. These scholarships will be presented at our Annual Communication.

Grand Master's Award

A certificate and pin will be presented to the outstanding member in each DeMolay Chapter, Rainbow Assembly and Job's Daughters Bethel for the year. This presentation should be made by the District Deputy Grand Master or the State, Zone or District Chairman of the Youth Activities Committee whenever possible. We strongly urge that these presentations be made during an open meeting, such as an Installation of Officers. Order form is included in this packet.

Adult Leaders Recognition 

The Adult Leaders of our youth groups do not belong to and work with these organizations for any fame or glory but do it because they want to make a difference and enjoy working with our young people. Our youth groups have their own ways to recognize and reward our adult leaders and all are deeply appreciated. As Masons, we should recognize them and present them with a Certificate of Appreciation for their individual effort. This should be done in their Particular Lodge or Chapter by the proper representative.

For questions or comments pertaining to the Youth Activities Committee contact the Program State Chairman.
