DeMolay is an organization that helps young men develop a variety of strengths, such as leadership skills, planning, how to run a business meeting, and public speaking, while quietly building character in the process. These skills are taught indirectly through the various meetings, functions, and events held by the chapter. As they are doing the event planning, running their meetings or giving public presentations, the young men of DeMolay are developing tools that will serve them throughout their lives. DeMolay teaches other important lessons as well. In our chapters we teach the lessons of love for parents, reverence for sacred things, courtesy to all, comradeship, loyalty, clean living and patriotism. DeMolay is truly unique in what it offers to the young men of our world.
