The JSA Speaker Series

JSA Speakers Program

With our focus on Civic Engagement, Leadership and Responsibility, we believe it is vital to the learning process to provide the students at all of our summer programs access to some of the most dynamic and influential leaders in American society today. These accomplished individuals not only present students with real world perspectives, they also enable students to directly connect with, and relate to, those who most embody leadership in thought, action and civic duty.

We are deeply grateful to the officials, honored dignitaries and leading citizens who take time to share their perspective on America with JSA Summer School students.
