In 1951 at the Conference of Grand Masters it was voted to adopt the Order of the Knights of Pythagoras as its official youth organization. One of the reasons for implementing this program was to establish a universal brotherhood for the young men of this organization. With this meaning, the youth would have the opportunity to experience the friendship not only within but outside of their jurisdiction.
The Most Venerable Thomas H. Routt Grand Council, Order of the Knights of Pythagoras is sponsored by the Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Texas. They are the key piece of a partnership between the Master Masons of the Prince Hall Grand Lodge Texas, the youth, and their parents in the communities where we have lodges. The Texas KOP promotes family values, community service, and also continuously provides training for our Youth Knight’s as they become the future leaders of tomorrow.
These are the current announcements from Michael L. Simms, Sr., State Director – KOP:
The Texas KOP is working on heading to Atlanta for its 2019 Young Men’s Empowerment Leadership Conference, July 24 – 28, 2019 titled “I Am the Change”. Charter buses will be departing from Dallas, Houston, and Killeen to transport the Youth Knights to Atlanta so we need your assistance help raise funds. We are asking you to please support our upcoming state & local fundraisers. We are looking forward to partnering with our Georgia KOP Family for a conference full of fun, food, training, and fellowship. We are looking at visiting:
- Morehouse College
- Morris Brown College
- Clark Atlanta University
- and other Atlanta sites.
This conference is about showing our youth why leadership is so important for their future.
