Being a member of Junior Service Club of St. Clair County has many benefits. There is the intrinsic feeling of helping those less fortunate or in need with hands on volunteer service. Membership in the Club offers the opportunity to become acquainted and work with people in the community who you may never have had a chance to meet. Friendships, many lifelong, develop working along side members on projects and participating in community service.
To join Junior Service, you must be sponsored by a current club member.
