Potential candidates have the opportunity to list their forays into school and community leadership roles, service activities, extracurricular activities, and notable recognition and awards.  Teacher recommendations are also sought and submitted by each candidate.

NJHS performs community service and helps focus on the importance of academics and community involvement.  Our chapter works to grow and build the leadership and citizenship characteristics of its members.  Monthly workshop-style meetings, quarterly service projects and high academic behavior expectations are all part of an NJHS Members experience.
