My son has been part of Young Marines since he was 9 years old and he's now almost 17. As a fairly pacifist person I was hesitant when he asked to join the program but as he begins his 8th year with the program I cannot begin to say enough good things about Young Marines in general and Miami Valley Young Marines in particular. He has grown so confident in himself and gained such incredible leadership skills that will serve him in every aspect of life. Through S.P.A.C.E.S. he has incredible opportunities for travel and experiences most kids can only dream about. The program as a whole is centered on developing mind, body, and confidence; all things that are so very important for our young people today.
