Each CISV chapter has a Junior Branch run by local youth who typically have participated in CISV programs. During the school year, about once a month the JB organizes service projects and social events in the Detroit area or plans youth activities at chapter-wide gatherings.
For the 2018-2019 school year, Aanya and John are serving as Co-LJRs. (That’s Local Junior Representatives!)
To contact anyone on the Junior Branch board, email firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about JB Detroit join the CISV jb Detroit Facebook group. To join the JB Detroit email list, send an email message to JB Advisors Amanda and Charlene at email@example.com. We would love to hear from you!
JB events that often happen every year
Cookie Bake, when about 40 JB members gather for a marathon cookie-baking overnight event.
Movie nights where JB members gather at someone’s home to watch and discuss a film with a message related to one of CISV’s four rotating annual themes: diversity, conflict management, human rights and sustainability. In recent years, JB members have watched and discussed Avatar, an award-winning James Cameron film with a sustainability theme, and Lean on Me, an award-winning Morgan Freeman film about a high school principal struggling to help students beat the challenges of poverty and low expectations.
