Since 1934, the Junior State of America (JSA) has helped well over 500,000 students acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to be active, informed and responsible citizens, voters and leaders. With its student-led, student-run school-year model and rigorous summer school programs, 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.
