How can I prepare a student to attend Boys State?



How can I prepare a student to attend Boys State?

After nominating the students, most of your job is to motivate them to prepare themselves. Encourage them to visit our website, read the Citizen Handbook, attend an orientation (a pre-session information meeting), review the material provided at the orientation, and come with an open-mind and an eagerness to participate and learn. 

We also provide informational sessions that will explain the program to your students.  Please contact our Headquarters to schedule a virtual presentation.
