Junior Branch

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!)

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.
