The National Society of the Children of the American Revolution, founded in 1895, is the oldest patriotic organization for youths in our country. Membership is open to descendants of patriots of the American Revolution.
The age range is birth to twenty-one. Meetings and activities are planned for all ages with special consideration given to younger members.
Members gain invaluable leadership experience in conducting meetings, following parliamentary procedures and standard protocol, serving as delegates, and speaking before groups at local, state, and national conferences. The responsibility and privilege of selecting officers helps members gain an understanding of the democratic process.
"The National Society of the Children of the American Revolution trains good citizens, develops leaders and promotes love of the United States of America and its heritage among young people."

The C.A.R. Creed states, "I believe in the Children of the American Revolution as an organization for the training of young people in true patriotism and love of country in order that they shall be better fitted for American citizenship." A significant way to encourage "patriotism and love of country" is to support those in our military and their families who exemplify these values.
