Junior State of America (JSA)

Junior State of America is a civil, non-partisan, welcoming community of students, teachers, alumni, board, staff, and supporters. We respect and care for each other, recognizing that the values that unite us as members of the Junior State community are grounded in learning, together, and how to live, together, in a democratic society. Some of the key pillars of our chapter are promoting knowledge and empowerment of our members and peers in civic engagement, activism, and community service.

We are able to accomplish much of our goals throughout the year in promoting awareness about a variety of issues, the growth of public speaking skills in debate, and sponsoring several events geared toward civic involvement and engagement in our community of Compton!

Throughout the year we also attend JSA conventions and institutions with other chapters from across Southern California and participate in debates, activism & college-ready programs.
