The youth program is for teenagers, young adults and young couples aged 14 to 35 years, but many of our contests and activities are  open to members of all ages.

The Oregon State Grange Youth program has two primary directives:

  1. Develop new leaders and provide them opportunities for personal growth.
  2. Create a program that underscores our fraternal values of honesty, integrity and compassion for the benefit of all humanity.

The first objective is met through various programs diverse enough that all youth should find a vehicle to personal growth that is meaningful to them. To mention a few…

  • Annual Oregon State Grange Session (State Youth Officers)
  • Regional Conferences
  • Annual National Grange Session
  • Ambassador Program
  • John Trimble Legislative Experience
  • District Representatives on State Youth Team
  • Achievement Award Program
  • Mentoring older Junior Grange members to assist their transition into the Youth Program

Through participation in the programs developed by the National and Oregon State Grange, youth will develop critical thinking skills, parliamentary procedure knowledge, public speaking skills, mentoring and other life skills. Development of these skills will shape our youth into tomorrow’s leaders.

The second objective is met through youth engaging in various community projects that support other organizations seeking to aid the welfare of others. The friendships youth enjoy during these efforts brings fellowship into their lives, something for which the Grange has always been known.

The rewards are many and the work light when many hands participate. Join the youth at their next event to learn about the opportunities available to you and how the Grange can enrich your life and have a good splash of fun to boot.
