I believe that American's Strength lies in her trust in God and in the courage and strength of her people.
I will, therefore, be faithful in my religious duties and will maintain a personal sense of honor in my own life.
I will treasure my American heritage and will do all I can to preserve and enrich it.
I will recognize the dignity and worth of my fellow man and will use fair play and goodwill in dealing with them.
To help guide Youth toward career, lifetime, and leadership goals.
We seek to implement a program of activities that develops the whole person, and that entails providing activities and experiences beyond our regular meetings.
We seek to provide an opportunity for each of our members to expand and enhance their leadership qualities, and experience what it means to develop themselves and see growth in others.
