Welcome to The American Legion Auxiliary’s Empire Girls State Program…
…inspirational, educational, life-changing, and fun!
“Being in EGS has made me into the woman I am today: confident, independent, kind, and most importantly, a leader in today’s world. As an EGS citizen, I learned so much about U.S. government and became prouder to be an American. As an EGS counselor for three years, I learned how to put my leadership skills to the test and serve as a role model and teacher for so many amazing young women. My experience at EGS and all the women who continue to make this program successful each year will always have a special place in my heart. As a citizen, EGS 2007 and as a counselor in 2009, 2010, and 2011, I will never forget the lessons I’ve learned and the friendships I’ve made. “I will always remember you…” and never forget that you can always “lean on me.”
“EGS made me so proud to be an American, as cliché as it sounds. Before EGS I never really thought about how lucky I was to be born in the USA, but since my week in Brockport, not a day goes by where I am not grateful for my citizenship.”
