SPONSORSHIP LETTER 2020 Aloha, The volunteers of ALA Hawai’i Girls State are reaching out to you today in efforts to build the name of a national program with grassroots efforts that have been positively affecting youth for over 80 years.
Since before World War II in 1937, the American Legion Auxiliary conducts a premier youth leadership program in each state of the United States to promote citizen engagement at the high school level. The ALA Girls State program is a nationally recognized, nonpartisan program that teaches young women responsible citizenship. Each state in the United States of America has one ALA Girls STate program where Selected high school girls having completed their junior year spend intensive days of study through a "simulated government" immersive learning experience working together as self-governing citizens. These future leaders assume roles in fictional political parties, run for and hold offices, and learn the fundamentals of the legislative process, the three branches of government, and parliamentary procedure. They learn lifelong lessons in leadership grounded in civics, teamwork, advocacy, consensus building, and respect. Two girls become “senators” to attend ALA Girls Nation, a weeklong national government training program in Washington, D.C. (At no charge to the participant). In order to provide continued foundation for this program in Hawai’i, the ALA Hawai’i Girls State (ALAHGS) is seeking to create an operating budget and build seed funding, which will fund transportation, provide meals and lodging, and cover activity fees. There is no paid staff and every dollar directly benefits the participants of ALA Hawai’i Girls State. There are numerous levels of need and if you have another idea, please indicate as such. ALHGS is a tax-deductible non-profit organization. ALAHGS is a 501(c)(19), which enjoys all of the exact same deductions as 501(c )(3), the ‘19’ is indicative of the volunteers being made up of United States Military/Veterans and their families (but, the girls attending the session do not have to have military affiliation). To sponsor one girl through this program is only $700. Maybe you are called to sponsor a lunch ($500), dinner ($750), or provide in-kind donation of printing, or name tags, or lodging/meeting rooms, etc. We welcome all of your generous ideas and are thankful that you took time to read this and learn more about our program.
