The Dirigo Boys State's Alumni Association.

The Dirigo Boys State's Alumni Association serves as a liaison for all graduates of the program. In partnership with the American Legion, Department of Maine, the Association provides the infrastructure for mutually beneficial relationships to further develop between the Program and its Alumni.

The Association supports the American Legion, it's affiliates, and programs through a commitment to continually develop and promote itself as an institution of which its community can be proud. Viewing alumni as the Program's most visible representation of success, the Association supports the American Legion in recognizing in visible and meaningful ways the contributions of its alumni to the Program, our communities, the State of Maine, and beyond. Through joint ventures and collaboration between the Association and the American Legion, the reputation of the Program will continue to strengthen as a center for discovery, scholarship and creativity
