The Young Marines is a national youth education and service program for boys and girls, age eight through the completion of high school. The Young Marines promotes the mental, moral and physical development of its members. The program focuses on teaching the values of leadership, teamwork and self-discipline, so its members can live and promote a healthy, drug-free lifestyle.
"The Young Marines National Foundation is thrilled to welcome GEICO Military's leadership and participation in the Young Marines National Foundation,” said Mike Zeliff, executive director, Young Marines National Foundation. “We are confident that, with the assistance of GEICO Military, the foundation will preserve and extend the excellent work of the Young Marines for years to come."
The Young Marines National Foundation financially supports the mission, values, and programs of the Young Marines by the solicitation, preservation, and distribution of gifts, grants, and matching funds from individuals, corporations, and foundations committed to the development of boys and girls into responsible citizens who enjoy and promote a healthy, drug-free lifestyle.
“The GEICO Military Team is proud to partner with The Young Marines National Foundation in support of the Young Marines’ programs,” said Kevin Isherwood, manager, Military Department at GEICO. “We are doubly pleased to participate in building a better American future through leading and supporting our youngest citizens.”
“With GEICO Military’s help, our goal is to expand the Young Marines,” Zeliff said, “so that every child in the United States will have access to gain the skills necessary to become great leaders and engaged, active citizens.”
