Society of Young Magicians
The Society of Young Magicians (S.Y.M.) is a group of magicians under the age of 18 sponsored by the Society of American Magicians (starting in 1984). The Society of Young Magicians has clubs, known as "assemblies" around the world, usually associated with an adult S.A.M group.
Youth aged 7 through 17 may seek membership in the S.Y.M. When a member turns 18, he or she graduates to full membership in the Society of American Magicians.
The purpose of the Society of Young Magicians is to promote interest in magic as a hobby that develops skill and self-confidence, the ability to speak in public, discipline that comes from learning, practicing and performing magic and a sense of service to others through helping others learn magic and by performing magic at charitable events.
The Society of Young Magicians has nearly 100 local chapters, or assemblies, around the world. Adult members of the Society of American Magicians supervise and instruct members of the S.Y.M.
S.Y.M's principle means of communication among its members is its electronic magazine, "The Magic SYMbol."
