|Building Leaders for the Future Today's youth, the leaders of tomorrow,
are looking for a challenge, for responsibility, for faith and trust. Yet,
despite their commitments and dedication, the youth of the world are often
condemned because of the uncontrolled actions of a minority of young
people. As Knights of Columbus, it is our responsibility to provide youth
with the means and the opportunities to become personally committed and
involved in meeting the challenges of our times.
Development of leadership in the Catholic young man is the main objective of the program. In the Columbian Squires, Knights serve as counselors to Squires circles in order to draw out the leadership talent of the circle’s young men.
Columbian Squires circles are sponsored by either a Knights of Columbus council or a Fourth Degree assembly. Basic requirements for a circle are at least one enthusiastic, dedicated counselor and 10 Catholic young men of Squires age. The official age range for Squires membership is 12 to 18 years old.
