Volunteer your time with ALA Girls State

ALA Girls State is a volunteer run program and is always looking for new staff without whom we would not be successful. Our talented staff has helped our program grow immensely over the past few decades. We are proud to be host to the students of Massachusetts with the support and sponsorship of the American Legion Auxillary.

We are always looking for help behind the scenes as well as counselors to supervise and guide the students. We are also looking for past ALA Girls State citizens to get involved during the week!


Our Volunteers:

  • Envision ALA Girls State as a worthwhile learning experience for themselves and students.
  • Can share their leadership experience with the youth of our state.
  • Willing to volunteer their time for either the entire week or part of the week during the program.
  • Celebrate diversity, open-minded, are able to listen, and respect others.
  • Desire to educate students about the basic ideas and principles of government that will help to ensure the survival of democracy.
  • Are physically able to maintain our active schedule and guide 250+ energetic, 16-17 year old students.
