California Junior Scholarship Federation also know as CJSF is a service based honor society.
Question: WHAT IS CJSF?
Answer: The purpose of the California Junior Scholarship Federation, a state-wide organization of over 600 chapters, is to foster high standards of scholarship, service, and citizenship on the part of students of California's public and private junior high and middle schools.
Only 8th graders are eligible for membership 1st semester. 7th and 8th graders are eligible for membership 2nd semester. If you were a member first semester, you MUST re-apply for second semester! Please pick up applications from Mrs. Jackson (E-14), Ms. Center (E-11), or the student center. All applications should be returned to Mrs. Jackson or Ms. Center. (You may also print an application from the column on the right)
Community Service is OPTIONAL...it is not required!!! The students are welcome to do any type of community service they would like. They can join a club through school, do something through a church, or any other community service they are interested in. There is no set number of hours required. Along with their CJSF membership certificate, they will get a certificate showing the number of hours they worked. This is a great thing to have when applying for colleges and scholarships. Community Service logs are due to Mrs. Jackson in E-14.
