    Boys State/Girls State (current 11th grade students only)

    Boys State

    American Legion Boys State is among the most respected educational programs of government instruction for high school students. Each participant becomes a part of the operation of his local, county and state government.

    Girls State

    Girls State is an opportunity to learn about one’s self and others. Living in dorms for the week, the delegates are divided into 14 floors which create individual “cities”. All 14 cities will comprise the Commonwealth of Virginia Girls State. In this program, delegates are afforded the opportunity to actualize government by living and working with other leaders from across the Commonwealth. The American Legion Auxiliary provides a nonpartisan environment for young women to understand the issues that face our country and develop their own views, while being engaged in leadership and citizenship activities.
