The Junior Statesmen has helped me in so many ways and has taught me not only about politics, but about life in general. In JSA, I am able to speak up and let others know by my own opinions on certain topics. As an audience member, I am also able to acquire new knowledge from my fellow JSA members that I had previously no idea about.

JSA has fundamentally changed my life and my high school career. JSA took me out of my shell and no I seek out opportunities to lead and speak in front of hundreds of people. I've been able to solidify my beliefs and participate in debates allowing me to strengthen my arguments. JSA has even given me the opportunity to go inside the White House, Supreme Court courtroom, and the floors of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. I've not only met many of our nation's leaders but also countless of wonderful people from around the world that I'm now lucky enough to call my friends. All in all JSA is everything a high schooler could ask for in an extracurricular.

JSA is a spectacular organization that promotes activism in the future of our nation. It has helped so many young people learn more about the political process while becoming involved in activism efforts, and I feel proud to count myself among the ranks of those it has served.

Junior State of America is an absolutely life changing organization with endless opportunities. It's not just about debates or thought talks, it's conventions and conferences plus the summer school opportunity that makes JSA unique and amazing. I had the best time at JSA summerschool at Stanford University studying A.P Government and Politics and it was a absolutely amazing experience. Also, Fall State, Winter Congress, and Spring State are extremely fun where you can talk with a variety of people on certain topics and make everlasting friendships! It truly is an incredible organization.

JSA has allowed me to not only pursue my passions, but help others discover their passions as well. There is no organization like JSA to me.

JSA has completely changed my outlook on what involvement is like. The advocacy department did such an excellent job in expanding my involvement in more than just JSA, but in my community.
