We Teach By Doing
Using our democratic system as a basis, we equip the participants or citizens to utilize the core values that hold true in our everyday lives. We teach the need for competition, the value of public service, the strength of the individual voice and vote. By reinforcing these basic American ideals, we help shape the future of our society.
Lessons that will Last a Lifetime
Shaping the Future
Across the nation, the American Legion Boys States have shaped some of the most prominent leaders in our country. Former President Bill Clinton, basketball legend Michael Jordan, the world renowned astronaut, Neil Armstrong, and our own former Governor, Bob Holden, are just a few of the prominent leaders who have come from the Boys State program. Boys State programs have time and time again led young men to do great things. Such is the nature of the program.
