The Monongahela Rockhounds is pleased to announce its affiliation with the Future Rockhounds of America program, sponsored by the AFMS (American Federation of Mineralogical Societies).

The goal of the Future Rockhounds of America is to provide encouragement and guidance to the youth of rockhound clubs.  The FRA sponsors a
merit badge program.  Youth members (anyone under 18 years of age) can earn merit badges in 15 areas of interest to rockhounds.  The initial Future Rockhound badge and the individual merit badges, as well as the Rockhound badge issued upon completion of any 6 merit badges are provided through the club.
