Since their early days, the Knights of Columbus have been actively concerned for the welfare of youth. The organization stands second to none in its commitment to and involvement with youths individually or collectively through organizations.
"Partnership with Youth" is the theme that motivates ongoing programs in local and state councils. Scouting units, CYO sponsorship, CDD training, Little Leagues, Big Brothers/Sisters, 4-H Clubs and many others have been assisted financially and by manpower donated by the Knights.
In the early 1920s, the Order decided to organize and sponsor its own youth program, known as Columbian Squires. This organization of Catholic young men can be sponsored only by Knights of Columbus councils or assemblies and has as its purpose the training of its members in the art and techniques of leadership. It is literally the junior organization of the Knights. The program is highly structured and operates internationally. Opportunity to accept positions of leadership and responsibility is the major attraction to membership in the Squires program.
