"MBS was truly a life-changing experience. The leadership experience in that one short week not only inspired me to be a leader in my school the next year, but also inspired me to be a leader in the United States Army."

A Word from Director Matt Dameron


Director Matt DameronFriends:

On behalf of the Board of Directors of The American Legion Boys State of Missouri, Inc., I am pleased to join over 100 volunteer staff members in saying, "Welcome to our website." I hope you will take a few minutes to browse and learn more about this outstanding program.

Our website will provide an overview of our program, familiarize our supporters and potential participants with our objectives and recap past Boys State sessions. It will also provide users with contact information related to our headquarters administrative staff.

The American Legion Boys State of Missouri, Inc. is a 501(c)3 charitable not-for-profit organization. The goals of the Board of Directors are to provide a top-quality educational experience for its participants, continuously improve the programs and curriculum and ensure the financial stability of Missouri Boys State well into the future.

The American Legion Missouri Boys State is the country's premier citizenship training program. Boys State has been developed on the central philosophy that students can best "learn by doing." We have been recognized nationally for our innovative style and training expertise. We are extremely proud of this program!

Over the last 70+ years, nearly 50,000 Missouri Boys State participants have benefited from the efforts of our dedicated volunteer staff. Many former Boys Staters are now successful, productive citizens who demonstrate the qualities of outstanding leadership and citizenship. Many of these participants point to Boys State as the catalyst for their success. A vast majority of them would tell you that their time spent at Missouri Boys State was truly "A Week to Shape a Lifetime."

Our program is determined to build on the success of past years and continue to provide the youth of Missouri the same quality program that their predecessors have been fortunate to experience. We hope you enjoy our website and we thank you for visiting.
