Upon graduation you earn your uniform and can continue to learn and grow within our program as a Young Marine.  Young Marines earn rank and awards like in the military for their achievements, service to the community, and more.

Cost to Join - $250



As a non-profit we cannot offer these items for free. However, we also don't want a youth turned away just because of cost. If you need assistance please talk to the unit paymaster to discuss options.
