Welcome to the Excelsior High Desert Young Marines Homepage!


We are the Excelsior High Desert Young Marines located in Victorville, CA. We are proud to be a part of our nation’s premiere, award-winning program for boys and girls between the ages of eight and eighteen years of age.

The Young Marines promote a healthy, drug-free lifestyle, and we rely heavily upon teaching and instilling the values of Discipline, Teamwork, and Leadership to youths participating in our program. Our goal is to set a positive example to instruct and inspire and develop leadership skills in our youth.

Upon completion of recruit training, participants are instructed in rank structure and allowed to take part in numerous activities in our area and sometimes in combination with other units when possible.  

These activites include community service projects, encampments and team-building activities and field trips to visit local and area sites of interest; Other activities include clear instruction about the dangers of drug abuse and helpful instruction on how to deal with peer pressure and other issues vital to our youths and America’s future.

It all begins when you contact us to request more information about our next recruit class!!!! Use the "Contact/Join Unit" button on the left side of this page to contact our unit so you too can make these opportunities available to your son or daughter.
