About the Organization:
American democracy is at a critical moment. With authoritarianism on the rise globally and deep partisan polarization at home, the values and norms that uphold American democracy are in flux. Junior State of America (JSA) believes that robust civic education and experience working across differences is at the core of strong democracies. We are stepping up in response to this moment in history.
Since 1934, Junior State of America (JSA) has helped over 500,000 students acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to be active, informed and responsible citizens, voters and leaders. With our student-led, student-run model, JSA enables students to experience the challenges and responsibilities of leadership and connect across differences, while developing 21st century skills applicable in any endeavor. JSA chapters serve as the center of political awareness at their schools; JSA conventions bring thousands of students together to share opinions and learn from each other. We are committed to developing an ideologically, geographically, and demographically diverse set of leaders, who work over their lifetimes to build our nation’s future.
