Young Men / Future Leaders Needed!
Integrity - Optimism - Innovation - Determination - Compassion
Do you possess any or all of these qualities? Do you have a community cause you think our state representatives should be fighting for? Have you ever considered a career in politics or do you simply want to learn more about the civic processes of our government? If so, you could be a candidate for the Green Mountain Boys State Leadership Development Program taking place this summer.
The Boys State program brings together rising seniors who are passionate about improving their community and their own leadership skills. Selected students will work together on issues related to their own towns as well as the state of Vermont. The group will then take these issues to the State House in Montpelier for debate and consideration. Two students will even earn a scholarship to take their cause all the way to Washington D.C.
