Teens in Service

The Junior Auxiliary of Slidell offers the Teens in Service program (formerly called Juniors in Service). This program is open to all students who will be entering their Junior or Senior year of high school in the fall of 2023 and who live in the Slidell/Pearl River area. The program will build leadership skills while teaching community stewardship through service. Each Teen in Service must complete a minimum of 12 hours of service, attend 2 of 4 Zoom meetings, and attend the mandatory orientation meeting September 18th. Numerous volunteer opportunities will be available to the students and a calendar of events will be provided at the orientation meeting. An application fee of $35 is also required. This fee helps fund the project and includes a Teens in Service custom t-shirt, printed with the class slogan. Students are to wear the t-shirt when involved in service activities. Sponsorship for the application fee is available on an as needed basis. Aside from service opportunities, students will participate in team building activities and explore needs in the community that they can fill by applying their time and talent. They will also develop a mission statement for their class. A Junior Auxiliary member will act as a mentor and will contact their students regularly with information about upcoming events. Students will be recognized at the end of the year graduation ceremony. The Teens in Service program is open to the first 30 students who submit a completed application and the $35 fee. Packets are available from each school counselor, online at http://jaslidell.org, or by emailing the Teens in Service Chair. The application deadline is September 15, 2023. Please mail the completed form with check payment to Junior Auxiliary of Slidell, c/o Jennifer Posey, TIS Chairwoman, P.O. Box 1486, Slidell, LA 70459. The application fee of $35 must accompany the application form. All checks should be made payable to Junior Auxiliary of Slidell. Applications may also be emailed to Jennifer Posey at teensinservicejas@gmail.com with a screenshot/receipt of paypal payment. Pay via PayPal at treasurerjas@gmail.com but you will have to pay the service fee plus the $35. If you pay via PayPal, please type the STUDENT’S first and last name in the memo so we know who to apply the application fee to. The application fee is non-refundable. Thank you!
