Our Mission

Now is the time for all of us to take action! 


As Ronald Reagan once said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.  We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected and handed on for them to do the same.”

The US Constitution is the bedrock upon which our nation was built and it sets us apart from every other nation on Earth. Teaching our nation’s youth on the Constitution helps ensure that is principles will be upheld for generations to come.


The 917 Society is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization of volunteers who are dedicated to educating our young people on the rights given to them by the U.S. Constitution.


We, the people of the 917 Society, realize how vital it is to help our young people understand their rights and responsibilities under the Constitution. We believe that by educating our youth leads to fostering a love for our country and the ability to engage in effective civil discourse.​

Our mission is to provide a lasting, durable copy of the Constitution for every 8th grader in the United States in an effort to prepare our young people to be responsible citizens with a knowledge and understanding of their privilege and rights as American Citizens. ​We provide programs, lesson plans, quizzes etc. to their teachers to help them plan their Constitution Day celebration (on or about 9/17) and offer contests and other lasting activities to further engage each student.

Join the 917 Society and help place a copy of the U.S. Constitution in the hands of our next generation. ​ There is tremendous value to the 917 Society’s mission to engage and educate our young people – the more kids know about the constitution the better equipped they are to defend and uphold it.

YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE BY GETTING INVOLVED.  Donate or volunteer (you or your organization) to deliver Constitutions to 8th-grade classrooms in your area or both.

Mission 2023


Thanks to the generosity of our donors and volunteers, The 917 Society successfully reached 1.3 million 8th graders across all 50 states in 2023. 

We believe that the time is NOW for The 917 Society to expand its outreach and impact.  Our goal is to double the number of students reached for 2024 -- and to continue to grow until we can reach every single 8th grade students in the country. This includes students from public, private, and homeschool backgrounds in all 50 states.

2024 promises to be a year of growth and further impact.  We need you to help!  Please join us in the fight for the future of America.
