|Description||Since 1934, JSA has helped more than 500,000 student leaders acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to be active, informed and responsible citizens, voters and leaders.
During the school year, the student-run Junior State of America operates on high school campuses nationwide as an extra-curricular activity. JSA allows students to experience first-hand the drama and power of politics as well as the challenges and responsibilities of leadership. JSA chapters serve as the center of political awareness at their schools and JSA conventions bring thousands of students together to share their opinions and learn from each other.
Every summer, JSA conducts college-level summer schools on the campuses of Georgetown, Princeton and Stanford universities, as well at Capital Normal University in Beijing, China. These programs offer a rigorous curriculum that includes advanced courses in government, politics, history and public speaking. The foundation also conducts institutes that offer advanced study of national issues and state and local government. Our speakers’ programs, a highlight of the summer programs, allow students to engage elected officials, public administrators, members of the media, lobbyists and civic and business leaders in lively dialogues about the public policy issues facing this nation.
