DeMolay is sponsored by Masons of the community. It is one way Masonry gives back to and remains active in communities. By sponsoring this group to teach leadership, morals and good citizen character, Masons are active in preserving our future. Masons feel DeMolay helps ensure that the leaders of tomorrow are given proper guidance today. Think of it as future assurance.
Each DeMolay chapter is sponsored by a group of Freemasons, a Masonic Lodge, or some other related Masonic group such as the Scottish Rite, York Rite or Shrine. The responsibilities of a sponsoring body are:
- To provide the chapter a place to meet
- To provide adult leadership and guidance through maintaining an active advisory council
- To assist the chapter whenever and however needed.
