What is Grange Youth? I'm glad you asked!
The National Grange Youth Program is designed to provide leadership training and life skills training opportunities. There are only two programs that are age specific; all programs are open to all Grange member regardless of age.
The goals of the National Grange Youth Development department include providing leadership training through a variety of opportunities such as: Regional Conferences, Ambassador Program, John Trimble Legislative Experience, Mentoring Programs and The National Convention, just to name a few.
Individual life skills are developed through the Achievement Award Program which offers opportunities for exploration in public speaking, communication (Sign-A-Song and Foreign Language), critical thinking, mentoring, and career exploration.
We work with the Junior Grange department in creating opportunities for older Junior Grange members to begin their transition into the Subordinate Grange by encouraging youth to be mentors to those older juniors and by providing opportunities for them to become involved in the Achievement Award Program.
