The Kingman Young Marines (KYM), a national youth organization and 501(c)(3), will hold its annual recruit training classes starting in September 2022. An informational session for perspective parents and recruits will be held on Thursday, 22 September at 301 N. 1 st Street at 6:30 PM at the Kingman Club For Youth gym. Parents and their children are encouraged to attend the presentation to understand the goals and objectives of the Young Marine Program. This meeting should last no more than 30 minutes. If you can’t make the meeting the KYM will have a booth at the Mohave County Fair and you are welcome to stop by and see us.
The recruit training classes will take place at Kingman Club For Youth on Saturday, September 24 & October 8, from 8 AM to 4 PM. There is no charge to attend the recruit training you just need to complete an application. The Young Marines is a youth education and service program for boys and girls, age eight through the completion of high school. The program focuses on character building, leadership, self-discipline and promoting a healthy, drug-free lifestyle.
“We are putting a call out to boys and girls to join our ranks,”; said Robert Skankey, unit commander of the Kingman Young Marines. “In the Young Marines, many friendships are formed and future leaders are developed.” Our Young Marines have proudly honored our nation military along with first responders by the presentation of our nation’s colors at numerous events around Mohave County and the state. Through a program called S.P.A.C.E.S (Summer Programs of Adventures, Challenges, Encampments and Schools) Young Marines get to attend leadership schools as well as
other travel opportunities such as working at a cattle ranch, exploring the “Wild West,” scuba diving lessons and visiting American historical sites. So, each year can hold a different challenge for the Young Marine enrolled in the program.

The Kingman Unit and the Young Marines’ objectives are:

  • To promote the physical, moral, and mental development of its members.
  • To advocate a healthy, drug-free lifestyle through continual drug prevention education.
