The youth organizations are separate and independent organizations that stress the importance of character development, community service and leadership. While members of the youth groups are free to seek membership in Freemasonry, Order of the Eastern Star, or other Masonic appendant bodies, it is a personal choice and not a requirement of membership in a youth order.
The goal of the Masonic Youth Program is to provide financial support of the Kansas based Chapters, Bethels and Assemblies for programs and initiatives that will enhance and embrace the core beliefs and principals of each organization.
The available funding must be tied to the growth and improvement of the individual organization and is not to be utilized for operational budgeting or International related funding requirements. All grants will be made on a case by case basis and must be applied for by the youth leadership of the respective organization.
