Shield Talk at Brotherhood Lodge No. 126

Brotherhood Lodge No.126 is the newest PA Masonic Lodge to become a proud sponsor of Northeast DeMolay, and tonight the officers and members of Northeast came to the PA Grand Lodge to perform the DeMolay Shield Talk for them. As part of a complete program to bring awareness of the Order of DeMolay before his home lodge, “Dad” Scott Gilligan presented a video that outlined the creation of our organization, and then directed a Q&A session with the members of his Lodge. It is only with the direct support of PA Freemasons like those found in Brotherhood Lodge, that our Masonic Youth program continues to thrive, making these young men better sons, and junior citizens.

Philadelphia Assembly No. 47 Installation

Members of Northeast Chapter and Friendship-Bray Chapter attended Philadelphia Assembly No. 47’s Installation of Officers today. Northeast Chapter of DeMolay would like to wish Alexis and all the members of Philadelphia Assembly No. 47 Order of Rainbow for Girls a fun and successful term. Thank you for inviting us today and we will always be there to offer our support.

Jerusalem Lodge Shield Talk

Tonight the officers and members of Northeast DeMolay visited their long time proud Masonic Sponsor, Jerusalem Lodge No.506. As part of Jerusalem’s District Night the chapter performed the DeMolay Shield Talk before a large body of gathered Freemasons, Friends and Family. Without the steadfast support of PA Masonic Lodges like Jerusalem, the programs and activities of Northeast DeMolay would be impossible to execute, and we thank them for everything that they have done, and continue to do for our Masonic Youth.

Thank you for your continued support of our Masonic Youth.

New Requirements for Advisor Training Program

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – DeMolay International is proud to launch the online DeMolay Advisor Training program!

 

To access the DeMolay Advisor Training program simply log in to eScribe.DeMolay.org and click on the Advisor Training tab at the top of the screen.

 

If a potential Advisor does NOT have an eScribe profile, meaning they are not a Senior DeMolay, former Advisor, or an Honorary Legion of Honor recipient they will need to register for a new profile. Registration is simple, go to DeMolay.org/AdvisorTraining.

 

This six module online training course is now the only officially approved Advisor Training course for new and continuing Advisors. These six modules consist of an Advisor Training program intro, how DeMolay operates, the role of the Advisory Council, Risk Management & Youth Protection policies and procedures, and concludes with a summation of resources at the Advisors’ disposal.

 

Each module is between five and 20 minutes and concludes by the participant answering a set of questions. These questions are not ranked or scored, rather the questions show what they have just learned in the video and the reference materials.

 

Effective today, July 1, 2016 all adults, serving on a Manor, Chapter, or Priory Advisory Council; serving as the advisor to a Court of Chevaliers; serving on a Jurisdiction Staff or in an “at large” Advisor capacity must be trained utilizing the online Advisor Training program, hosted on eScribe by December 31, 2016.

 

The DeMolay Advisor Development (D.A.D.) program is no longer authorized for Advisor Training and Certification but may be used as a supplement. Also, Executive Officers may supplement the online course with locally developed material and require completion of the local material a condition of Advisor certification.

 

Completing the DeMolay Advisor Training program does not mean participants are automatically DeMolay Advisors. All potential Advisors still must complete the Advisor Application at DeMolay.org/AdvisorApplication.

 

DeMolay International could not have completed this incredible venture without the financial support of the Wisconsin DeMolay Foundation!
