Students learn by doing in JSA, but there is always room for guidance and encouragement from parents. Conventions, conferences, and chapter activities that take place during the school year are run by students under the guidance of teachers, counselors, parent chaperons, and staff of the Junior Statesmen Foundation. While we require each school-based chapter to have a teacher/advisor sponsor, in many cases parents and guardians are invaluable in assisting teachers with preparation for major events and activities.
JSA Summer Programs are sponsored and run by the non-profit Junior Statesmen Foundation, and are staffed by experienced educators. If your high school student is interested in attending a JSA summer program, there are many ways you can help your child prepare.
If you have any questions on how to help your child get involved with JSA, do not hesitate to contact us.
