Young Men The Aaronic Priesthood is the basic organization for the young men of the Church ages 12 through 18. The Young Men organization is an auxiliary or help to the priesthood.

At the general level, the First Presidency, Quorum of the Twelve, and Presiding Bishopric are responsible for the young men of the Church. The Presiding Bishopric is the presidency of the Aaronic Priesthood of the Church (see D&C 107:15). The First Presidency calls three men to serve as the Young Men general presidency.

Members of the stake presidency oversee the Aaronic Priesthood in the stake. Within each ward, the bishopric, as the presidency of the Aaronic Priesthood within the ward (see D&C 107:15), is responsible for each young man. The ward Young Men presidency assists the bishopric in this responsibility.

The Young Men organization promotes the growth and development of each young man through quorum instruction, quorum activities, and combined Aaronic Priesthood-Young Women activities. The Young Men organization strengthens the work of the Aaronic Priesthood in the ward
