East Valley Young Marines

The Inland Empire’s Premier Youth Leadership Program

Welcome to the East Valley Young Marines Home Page
Training is conducted on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month at the Redlands Elks Lodge.  We will also meet at our 2nd Training Location (Hulda Crooks Park in Loma Linda) on specific dates t.b.d. 

I would just like to say what a pleasure it has been the past 22 years being involved with the Young Marines Program.  Like many of you, I believe children should be able to have an opportunity to excel and utilize the leadership traits that they have within themselves.  This program offers them that chance. The changes that occur within the few months of Recruit Training are quite visible. Changes in behavior, manners and respect are just a few of the noticeable characteristics that are achieved during the process.  This system of leadership building is on-going and your support, guidance and confidence with your Young Marine is crucial to the development of the skills that are needed to be successful in this program. I encourage all of you to make the commitment of strengthening the lives of America’s youth by supporting the program and the Adult Volunteers that help make the program a success.

Since 1959, the Young Marines organization has grown to over 264 units with over 10,000 boys and girls ages 8 to completion of high school.  We are a national organization in 39 states, including Washington, DC, Germany and Japan.


The East Valley Young Marines promotes the mental, moral and physical development of its members.  The program focuses on character building, leadership and promoting a healthy, drug-free lifestyle that is conducive to being productive members of society.
