Junior board of directors

Assuming a national leadership role of an organization of more than 13,000 youth from across the country is a big responsibility. It also provides a wonderful opportunity to sharpen your leadership skills, improve your communication skills, and develop decision-making skills that will help you the rest of your life. You’ll also work closely with a team of eight other talented individuals that may become some of your best friends for life. Serving on the NJSA Board is an awesome experience it’s also an experience that we want you to take seriously so the members of our organization are served by the best leaders possible.
