What is Echelon?
The mission of Echelon is to mobilize young adults to engage with The Salvation Army through fellowship and networking, donations and fundraising, and service and volunteering. Echelon provides an avenue for emerging professionals to engage with The Salvation Army’s mission in a tangible way within their local communities.
The Salvation Army has 22 officially chartered Echelon chapters (local Echelon group) nationwide. There are an additional 15 chapters actively being developed and our goal is to have 50 active chapters across the nation by the end of 2020.
Who can join?
Echelon is for emerging professionals. Most often, Echelon members are men and women aged 21-35 who have an interest in making an impact in their local community.
Why should I consider being a part of this?
If you are interested in making an impact in your local community alongside like-minded peers, you should join Echelon! This allows you to meet other young professionals who have the same goal and also make connections with local Salvation Army and community leaders.
How do you apply to be part of it?

Contact the chapter closest to you to find out more information regarding their membership requirements. If there isn’t currently a chapter located in your city but you are interested in starting one, please contact [email protected].
