Castro Valley DeMolay
DeMolay is an International Fraternity!
Fun with a Purpose
DeMolay is dedicated to preparing young men to lead happy and productive lives. Basing its approach on timeless principles and practical, hands-on experience, DeMolay opens doors for young men by developing the civic awareness, personal responsibility and leadership skills so vitally needed in society today. DeMolay accomplishes this serious mission by combining it with a program of exciting and diverse activies that can be enjoyed by young men with all kinds of interests.
Members learn how to set goals, organize their time, speak comfortably to a group, make a budget, use their resources, implement their ideas, and think critically. These are life-skills that DeMolay members learn as second nature several years ahead of their peers.
A Level of Independence
The DeMolay chapter is run completely by its members. Adult volunteers called Advisors are present at every DeMolay event but stay in the background as much as possible. They provide a safety net, the resources, and the mentorship the young men need.
A Safe Place to Grow
DeMolay provides a place where young men can try new experiences and have social interaction with peers in an environment where they will be safe and supported. DeMolay members learn responsibility, respect for others, and how to interact with adults both as authority figures and as coworkers.
DeMolay? . . . What's that?
DeMolay is a club (or better yet a world-wide fraternity) for young men between the ages of 12 and 21.
The individual clubs are called chapters. There are hundreds of DeMolay chapters in North America and even more around the globe.
How It Works
Castro Valley Chapter (CVD) meets on the first and third Monday of each month at the Castro Valley Masonic Center. The members vote on how the chapter is run and plan other chapter activities. Members have planned and executed dances, movie/game nights, pancake breakfasts, and participate in sporting tournaments, ritual competitions, Walk-a-thons for Leukemia and Lymphoma, and other social, charitable and fundraising activities.
Its Bigger Than That!
When you join a DeMolay Chapter, you join a world-wide brotherhood that spans over 7 decades. DeMolay members commit themselves to being better sons, better citizens, and better friends. As a member you will join an organization that has included John Wayne (actor), Fran Tarkenten (sports), Mel Blanc (voice of Bugs Bunny), Frank Borman (Astronaut), and Walt Disney (Disneyland) as members. Not only that, you will have the opportunity to meet other members from all around the world, as you go through life. It is a network of friends that can't be beat.
DeMolay . . . Is something you and your parents can agree on.
