Young Marines is a national youth education and service program for boys and girls, ages 8 through 18 (or completion of high school), that began in 1959. The Young Marines promotes the mental, moral, and physical development of its members. The program focuses on teaching discipline, teamwork, and leadership skills, and promotes a healthy, drug-free lifestyle. The Young Marines program is the focal point of the US Marine Corps efforts to reduce, in our youth, demand for drugs.

To move beyond Young Marine/Sergeant, a Young Marine must earn the Conservation Ribbon. This ribbon involves several projects. It can be earned at any stage in a Young Marine's career. To help our Young Marines earn this award, we've put together some forms to help plan the compositions and a form to track sign-offs for the ribbon. See our Forms & Training page or the Unit Library on the national site.
