Ayrshire Young Masons is an association of Freemasons in the Province of Ayrshire - for members aged 44 years and under.

Its aim is to promote active participation by members in the full scope of Freemasonry, by organising events that encourage all young Freemasons of Ayrshire* to meet, socialise and help build a positive future for our beloved Craft.

*We continue to work closely with the neighbouring Province of Kilwinning therefore Brethren of the Mother Lodge of Scotland (Lodge Mother Kilwinning No.0) meeting the eligibility criteria, can join AYM and enjoy the same opportunities afforded to the members of the 44 Ayrshire Lodges.

Details of our committee and trust can be found on the AYM Committee page.

We arrange numerous social and fund raising events throughout the year.  Details can be found on the AYM Events page

Bro. Thomas Lynch, WJW Lodge St. Andrew Kilmarnock No.126. 

We organise activities for Young Freemasons within three distinct categories;


Social - Social events include going for drinks, and organising full-blown suppers or activity / entertainment nights.  We also encourage members to visit other Ayrshire Lodges, as a way of meeting with fellow members in the own Lodges, and socialising afterwards. 

Educational - Lectures are a useful tool to help strengthen members knowledge and understanding of Masonic subjects - these are organised regularly throughout the year.  We are helping to create mentorship programmes, so that Brethren benefit from support / advise from experienced members of our fraternity, as the progress through their Masonic journey. 

Charitable - Charity is one of the fundamental teachings of Freemasonry. Therefore, the AYM association will work hard to raise funds in order to disperse to charities and deserving causes within our local communities- Freemasonry can play its part in building community, and re-introducing The Craft to the wider world, in a positive and exciting way!
