Girls State

American Legion Auxiliary (ALA) California Girls State is a leadership program sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary Department of California, designed to increase awareness and knowledge of governmental processes while learning about the duties, privileges, rights and responsibilities of citizenship. Delegates come away with a greater appreciation of the American Flag and of the sacrifices made by our veterans. While at ALA Girls State, they make friends with outstanding students from around the state and have a fun week they’ll remember for the rest of their lives.

Nearly 300 California ALA Units work all year to raise money in order to provide scholarships to students to attend ALA Girls State. Local Units recruit from area high schools and select young women just completing the 11th grade to attend the summer session.
