Junior States of America

Francis Labore and Marissa Macy from the Greenfield-Central chapter of Junior States of America told about the the mission, the chapter, and the programs of JSA.  Greenfield-Central has about 20 members in their chapter, the only JSA chapter in Indiana.  The chapter was started 5 years ago. 

The mission of the Junior State of America and the Junior Statesmen Foundation (JSA) is to strengthen American democracy by educating and preparing high school students for life-long involvement and responsible leadership in a democratic society.

The mission is accomplished through a leadership academy, one day conferences and three multi-state conferences call fall-state, winter congress, and spring state that offer a wide range of topics and activities to engage and inform students from all backgrounds.

Some activities offer extra class credit and some conferences offer college credit.  The students must pay for their own transportation and conference registrations.   To find more information or donate to Junior State go to
