SKJAJA Clubs provide a way to improve communities and enrich kid’s educational and cultural experiences. Club members can participate in various activities in and out of their high school. They not only create activities to fundraise for SKJAJA, but they also like to do fun activities that can help the community grow.

Together they creates mentoring and tutoring positions for the Club members. They also have been involved with:
