The Call of
After learning about DeMolay in Arizona from a pamphlet his father gave him, Frankie joined the surging Cochise Chapter, where he was quickly noted by the adult volunteers as "credible and ambitious."
Frankie's dream was to pursue a career in the military, so his adult mentors sent him to Advanced Leadership Training in Northern California with the Foundation's backing. It was there that Frankie boosted his confidence and gained the desire "to become a great leader."
IN FRANKIE'S WORDS
“DeMolay is one of the few organizations worldwide that truly allows the freedom to experience leadership independent from adult intervention. It allows us to practice planning skills, public speaking, and improve upon the social skills necessary to succeed as an adult. It is freedom gently guided by adult mentors that transforms us into young men. I am forever grateful to DeMolay in Arizona for this and will carry its lessons with me for the rest of my life."
