Young Americans living in Europe don’t have many of the same opportunities as their counterparts in the United States. Their participation in the Boys State and Girls State programs is contingent on their sponsoring Posts ability to raise the necessary funds to send them from their home in Europe to the United States.

The American Legion Boys State and American Legion Auxiliary Girls State are the premier programs for teaching how government works, while developing leadership skills and an appreciation of the rights and responsibilities of citizenship.

Boys State and Girls State are summer leadership and citizenship programs for high school juniors. Boys and Girls are usually nominated by their high school during their junior year
In this exciting summer program, you can run for office, learn public speaking, draft and debate legislation, and actively participate in all phases of creating and running a working government.

The students will develop a confidence that will shape your future. Successful completion of Boys State and Girls State is recognized by employers, service academies and university admissions boards as an indicator of strong leadership and character traits. Many colleges and universities offer scholarships or admission preference to attendees of Boys or Girls State programs.
