Order of DeMolay

DeMolay is the premier youth leadership organization building young men of character and dedicated to making young men better people and leaders. Providing a program based on timeless principles and practical experience, DeMolay strives to not only create the extraordinary leader, but a leader of character. DeMolays hold themselves to a higher moral standard, striving to constantly improve and be better each and every day.

DeMolay is a youth-led, adult-advised organization in which young men learn to plan, organize, and facilitate their own programs. DeMolays take part in a wide-range of activities, from athletic competitions, to public speaking tournaments, to community service events. All activities are guided by the interests of the local chapter. If you can dream it, you can do it in DeMolay.

DeMolay provides endless fun and friendships that last a lifetime, even with such a serious mission. When a young man joins DeMolay, he instantly gains over four million brothers across the globe. No youth organization provides such life-changing experiences like DeMolay.

But words are insufficient to describe DeMolay; it must be experienced. Give it a chance and we know you will discover what we already know; DeMolay is the greatest youth organization in the world.

The Cumberland Scottish Rite has proudly sponsored the Cumberland Chapter of DeMolay since March 20, 1922.  In March 2017, the Chapter will celebrate 95 years building young men of character in the Cumberland area.  

The Cumberland Chapter of DeMolay #21009 meets the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month at 7:30 pm the Masonic Temple on Greene Street, Cumberland.  Participation is open to young men ages 12-21.  The lifetime membership fee is $35.
