Who We Are

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.

Get to Know Us

The South Plains Young Marines unit started in October of 2019 with just a handful of boys and girls. Today, our unit has grown to 20 Young Marines. We meet every other Saturday for Drill which consists of a variety of activities such as Drug Demand Reduction, American Legion clean up, physical training, close order drill and much more.
