SKJAJA clubs were formed at two of the local high schools during the 2009-10 school year to help support the SKJAJA Fund. Leah Komada founded the Chapel Hill High School club and Adam Glasser (the last “A” of SKJAJA) started the Carrboro High School club. In the 2010- 11 school year a recent grant recipient, Gabi Johnson, formed the SKJAJA Club at East Chapel Hill High School.
The students lead the clubs in FUNd-raising activities to help raise money for local kids to participate in extra curricular activities. In addition to school-wide fundraisers, they also hold car washes together at the Chapel Hill Pizza Hut. The students recruit not only club members to help with these events,but grant recipients and kids from elementary and middle schools, as well.
Their next big project (spring 2011) is helping to organize a community service day for some of the upcoming grant recipients to participate in.
