"I think you will agree with me that the hope of this country is with her youth...."

The National Society of the Children of the American Revolution, founded in 1895, is the oldest patriotic youth organization in our country. Membership is open to descendants of patriots of the American Revolution. 

Members gain valuable leadership experience in conducting meetings, following parliamentary procedures and standard protocol, serving as delegates and speaking before groups at local, state and national conferences. The responsibility and privilege of selecting officers helps members gain an understanding of the democratic process.

"Good citizens cannot be made suddenly. They must grow..." Harriett Mulford Lothrop
Founder of The National Society of the Children of the American Revolution, April 5, 1895
