Hoosier Boys State builds important real-world skills and leadership qualities in exceptional young men by creating a functional state government based on Indiana’s political process.
During this week-long program, junior-aged high school students will actively collaborate to establish platforms for two made-up parties, participate in elections, propose laws, negotiate bills and enforce the established legislation from the local up to the state level.
WHAT OUR ALUMNI SAY...
Boys State is one of my best memories from high school. My fondest memories are of playing Reveille every morning and taps at the final program. Boys State taught me about so much more than government; Boys State taught me about strength and independence.
