What is Temple Guard?

Temple Guard Drill Team is an inspirational youth program that has continued to grow over the past 20 years.  This mentoring program is based on the discipline and focus that trains youth in grades K-12 in military-style boot camp marching and dance to the accompaniment of drum line.

The programs mission is to serve as a mentor for youth of all ages, genders, races, religions and economic backgrounds.  Our purpose is to enrich participants’ lives by teaching respect for one another and elders in and around their neighborhood; to be leaders, not followers; to set a higher standard of living as a role model for others in the community and in school; and to settle for no less than a passing grade in all subjects.  This is achieved by:

  • Building character through military-style boot camp marching with structured discipline (push-ups, running laps, etc)
  • Providing positive male and female role models
  • Teaching responsibility classes dealing with problem solving and decision making regarding issues such as: manners, saying “NO” to drugs/alcohol, healthy dating and sexuality, peer pressure, etc.
  • Creating a positive scholastic attitude that leads to passing grades
  • Enhancing individual leadership skills
  • Encouraging community involvement
  • Providing trips outside of the city, giving experiences that the youth otherwise might never have the opportunity to experience
