The Military Order of the World Wars (MOWW) is a non-profit, Veteran Service Organization established in 1919. Among its other national, community-focused outreach programs, the Order's Patriotic Education Program focuses on youth education, development and recognition.
The Puget Sound Chapter meets its Patriotic Education outreach goal through its 501c3 foundation called The Northwest Youth Leadership Foundation, which sponsors the Northwest Youth Leadership Conference and the Washington State Patriotic Day.
We provide students the chance to learn about leadership and develop/improve leadership skills and/or learn and internalize aspects of American heritage, patriotism, and free enterprise, at little or no cost.
