What are SKJAJA Clubs?

“Everybody can be great, because anybody can serve.” - Martin Luther King, Jr.

Most Chapel Hill-Carrboro High Schools have a student-led SKJAJA Club. The purpose of SKJAJA Clubs is to build community through service. Student clubs lead, organize and participate in SKJAJA service projects in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro community throughout the year, providing students important social and community connection, collaboration skills and servant leadership opportunities. 

Clubs are guided by a teacher/mentor and co-led by SKJAJA students. All students grades 9-12 are welcome to join. 

What do the Clubs do?

The SKJAJA Clubs get to plan their own adventure! 

  • Plan and lead SKJAJA Service Days, typically on one Saturday per month throughout the school year, providing CHCCS high school students opportunities for service-learning hours required for high school graduation;

  • Organize fundraising activities to support the work of SKJAJA Fund, allowing all students access to meaningful extracurricular and enrichment opportunities;

  • Engage in service-related leadership development training with SKJAJA partners.
