The American Legion of Iowa Boys State Board of Directors is very proud of the staff and counselors. The list starts with you.  Please make your commitment early, and start registration in January 2023.   It is our intention to make staff/counselor assignments as early as possible! There are now TWO links to sign-up to be a counselor, and you should click on one below.

Please keep in mind that the background check must be done just prior to Boys State, and the fee to run the background check is paid by The American Legion of Iowa Boys State.  Please make sure you have made a firm commitment for the proper dates, as staff/counselor shirts will be ordered based on the information you provide.
