Each year during the federal budget process Congress authorizes and appropriates funding to ensure the Young Marines program is able to provide youth leadership education, development, and drug prevention and resistance education for the coming year. In Fiscal Year 2022 and 2023, the Young Marines was cut out of the budget process because of the way the budget was passed, which means that we received no federal funding to continue the mission of strengthening the lives of America’s youth for our Fiscal Year 2023 and 2024.  As budget negotiators make a final decision on the yearly budget, you can write your senators and representative to ask for their help in ensuring the Young Marines receive the funding again in Fiscal Year 2024 which will impact us in 2025.


Send them an email directly from our platform asking for their support in helping the Young Marines continue to positively impact America’s future by providing quality youth leadership and development programs that nurture and develop our youth into responsible citizens who enjoy and promote a healthy, drug-free lifestyle.
Strengthening the lives of America's youth
