The purpose of The American Legion Boys State Committee is to provide citizenship training for boys of high school age, under the age of 18, in every constituent District in The American Legion, Department of Michigan; to afford them an opportunity to live together as self-governing citizens; to inform them about the duties, privileges, right and responsibilities of American citizenship in order that they may understand and participate in the functioning of their government; and to help grasp the meaning of some of the responsibilities which they must assume when they become adults.
