Young Marines National Headquarters
The Young Marines of the Marine Corps League is a program designed to foster the character development, leadership abilities, moral and physical progress, and drug free, healthy lifestyle of boys and girls aged 8 through the end of high school. The program achieves its mission through interactive education and service experiences. The three words that compose a motto for the organization are: leadership, discipline, and teamwork.
Young Marines holds a National Leadership Academy located in Richmond, Virginia that prevails for two and a half weeks. All levels of young marines attend, and come in from all over the country. Metropolitan Shuttle’s services of bus rentals and bus charters provide “excellent” transportation for kids from the airport to the camp in Richmond. Typically one bus picks up the advanced leadership class and three more buses ensure the safe transport of the junior and senior classes.
A Young Marines informant expressed that the buses were always timely if not ahead of schedule; in the 2010 trip one bus was scheduled to come at 5pm and got there at 3:45pm. This allowed plenty of time for loading the bus, and the youth all had plenty of time to access their flights or other means of travel, making it a relaxing transition for everyone. The academy takes place in early July and is an annul occurrence, and for the past six years Metropolitan Shuttle has been their choice for means of transportation. Metropolitan Shuttle can be counted on to be professional, personable, and reliable at all times.
