SPECIAL MEMBERSHIPS FOR YOUNG PEOPLE

*YOUTH - also known as "UNGE VENNER" ("Young Friends")
Who qualifies?
Young people ages 16 through 23 who are directly descended from a current member (child, grandchild, or great grandchild). These directly descended “Unge Venner” qualify for free membership regardless of where they are living.

For example, a son or daughter who is living in a dorm at college would qualify. The child, grandchild or great-grandchild doesn’t need to live with the current member to enjoy this free membership.

Young people ages 16-23 who live with a current member, regardless of familial relationship also qualify.  For example, a foreign exchange student living with a family of members could qualify.  Or, a young person who is living with an aunt or uncle who is a member would qualify because they are living in the same household as a current member.

*HERITAGE (15 and under)
Kids 15 and under join free!
