Who We Are

Echelon is a community of diverse young adults collectively rising up to serve The Salvation Army through fellowship and networking, donations and fundraising, and service and volunteering. Echelon was founded in 2010 in Dallas, Texas and has since been branded as the National Young Adult Auxiliary of The Salvation Army. The Salvation Army has been Doing the Most Good in Birmingham for more than 115 years. We are proud of its history and hopeful for its future. As the younger generation, we are rising up to support the continued work of rebuilding the lives of men, women, children, and families around us. We believe in The Salvation Army mission to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.
