Lietuvos Vyčiai /Knights of Lithuania - yra šiuo metu didžiausia ir aktyviiausiai veikianti emigrantų lietuvių organizacija, kurioje aktyviausiai reiškiasi antros, trečios ir tolesnių kartų lietuviškas šaknis turintys amerikiečiai.

Lietuvos Vyčiai organizacija įsteigta 1913 m. balandžio 27 d. Lawrence, Massachusetts

The Knights of Lithuania is a nationwide organization of Roman Catholic men and women of Lithuanian ancestry and their spouses. Adhering to the motto: "For God and Country";, the Knights of Lithuania aim to keep alive among its members an appreciation of the Lithuanian language, customs and culture while also stressing the importance of Roman Catholic beliefs.

Organized on April 27, 1913, the Knights of Lithuania were begun as a youth organization. Its purpose was to unite the Lithuanian youth living inthe USA, and through them, preserve Lithuanian culture and restore freedom to Lithuania, then divided between Russia and Germany. It has since become a family organization. St. Casimir, patron saint of Lithuania's youth, is honored as the organization's patron.

With Lithuania's regained freedom, the Knights of Lithuania have set new goals. Currently, we are aiding the Lithuanian Pontifical College in Rome through the St. Casimir Guild; shipping much needed medical supplies and equipment, aiding the Vilnius Trade School, funding Soup Kitchens and the St. Joseph's Seminary in Vilnius through Aid to Lithuania, Inc.; we supply Roman Catholic reading materials and other aid through the Knights of Lithuanian Foundation, Inc. and promoting a deeper understanding and reverence of the Blessed Mother through the Our Lady of Siluva Fund, Inc.

Here in the United States, we strive to keep alive our Lithuanian heritage through cultural presentations, lectures, trips, choral and dance groups. A longtime member once said, "Our youth is our future". and the Knights of Lithuania have heeded these words. Through the efforts of our National Scholorship Fund, the organization is able to help talented members further their education. In addition we encourage all councils to form Junior Councils for our younger members.
