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.
