Start A Unit:

For anyone interested in starting a Young Marines unit in their community, there are several important things to consider: 
There must be a least one Marine in good standing – Former, retired, reserve or active duty who is willing to serve as the Unit Commander. 
A sufficient number of volunteers must be recruited to handle the training and supervision of your Young Marines. A minimum of three registered adults is required to start the unit. At least one of your Registered Adult Volunteers must be a female. 
There must be an adequate facility to host your unit meetings. The facility must offer a safe, clean and hospitable atmosphere for your youth and adult volunteers. All adult volunteers and Young Marines must be registered with the Young Marines National Headquarters.
