From The Director
It is my pleasure to welcome you to Palmetto Boys State Online. PBS Online is our resource for everything you need to know about Boys State including information about the current session, the history of our program, and much more.
Please use this site as a resource. We are proud of our program and of what it instills in young men across the state. Our commitment to the ideals of freedom, democracy, and Americanism under the guidance of the American Legion makes our program unique among leadership experiences. This website is meant to help prepare you for your journey through Boys State.
Great for parents and “citizens” alike, PBS Online will help answer all of your questions about Boys State and what to expect during the weeklong session. If you have any other questions not answered here please feel free to contact me or any staff member to learn more.
Congratulations to all of you who have already received acceptance letters to participate in this exciting program. If you have not received a letter and are interested in attending, contact your high school guidance counselor, principal, or local American Legion Post for information on how the selection process operates. Boys State is so much more than can be described on any website! An opportunity of a lifetime awaits you. We encourage you to make the most of your Boys State experience.
Sincerely, Stephen Lewis Director
