About Youth l and ll

The Youth Program's inception dates back to  2019, while under the leadership of Past Grand Master Cleon B. Williams Sr 33 and Past Grand Matron Sis. Sheryl S. Head. Comrade LaRonda Smith and Comrade  Fred Dempsey were appointed by the Grand Master to be the Youth Matron and Youth Patron.

As of 2023, the Youth Program continues to grow and expand the family.
