"Boys State was one of the greatest, most life changing experiences of my life. I learned about how the Missouri government worked, and I gained more respect for all the people who work in Missouri politics. Not only did I learn about politics but I learned a lot about myself."
The most important thing that you can do to prepare yourself for attending Missouri Boys State is to attend an orientation meeting. These meeting are presented by MBS staff volunteers and Legion members. We have designed these meetings to be very informative and provide a comprehensive overview of the program.
It is very important that you and your parents/guardians attend one of these meetings as we will be handing out a packet of documents and materials that you will need prior to and during the week of Missouri Boys State.
This will be time for you and your parents to ask questions and meet fellow delegates from your area.
These meetings are very important and we ask you attend at least one meeting held in your district. If for some reason you cannot attend a meeting, please contact headquarters.
