Youth Motto: “I’d be delighted”
The New York State Grange Youth Department program is intended
to find something of interest to everyone. It is our goal to
involve the Youth in various aspects of the "Total Grange
Program." To this end, we have selected one or two specific
activities from each of the following departments listed in this
section of our Handbook. It is believed that by nurturing our
youth through specific involvement in the "Total Grange
Program," they will desire to be involved in the development,
implementation, and continuation of the Grange at all levels
which will help generate our future leaders.
The New York State Grange Youth
Department represents members age 13 - 35. However, all
Youth Activities are open to all Community Grange
members. Check individual programs/contests for age
''Attitudes are contagious. Are yours worth catching?"
,.. Dennis & Wendy
Do you have your GPA - your Grange ,Positive Attitude
- what you need in order to keep all around you in a forward
moving manner? A member that possesses a GPA is one that will
attract new members, encourage the discouraged, and gracefully
win or lose a contest. When a member has their GPA, you can
recognize them by their sunny disposition, cooperative manner,
and ability to make others around them feel good as well. Your
GPA will work to motivate those around you. There will be no
failures, but only small successes. As Youth, it behooves you to
always make sure you have your GPA whenever you have a task to
complete. All those you meet will want to be around you.
