The American Legion Boys State of Virginia provides young men with a broad understanding of the privileges and responsibilities of citizenship and a better understanding of how our government works. It is expected that each citizen will take the ideas and knowledge he has gained through Virginia Boys State and apply them in his own high school and community.

During the week of Boys State, citizens participate in a wide variety of educational and recreational activities and hear inspirational talks from both state and national leaders. Your donation funds nationally known speakers who appear at Virginia Boys State. In addition, your donation assists with registration fees for eligible delegates and funds college scholarships. A small portion of your donation also funds Boys State recruiting, administrative costs and various special projects, which enhance the Boys State experience.
