The New York State Grange Youth Department represents members age 13 1/2 – 35. However, all Youth Activities are open to all Community Grange members. Check individual programs/contests for age specifications/requirements.

The New York State Grange Youth Department program includes 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.
