917 Society is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization with a passion to encourage young people to know their rights given to them by the U.S. Constitution as citizens.

 

Why "917"?

The 917 Society was founded to celebrate the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787. The name "917" comes from the date 9-17 (September 17th). We welcome everyone the opportunity to become a member and contribute to our mission to empower our youth and place a copy of the Constitution in their hands as a "rite of passage" as they grow in citizenship. We work all year preparing for this event. Your contributions today will make a lasting impact on the future for our youth and our country.
