Student Clubs and Organizations
JSRCC has many active student clubs. Getting involved in student clubs and organizations is an exciting way for students to meet fellow students, develop leadership skills and enhance their classroom experiences. By planning or participating in student activities, students can help make a positive impact on the campuses of JSRCC. Students who do not find an
on-campus club that interests them can work with the Office of Student Life to possibly start a new club.

JSR LEAD is the college’s student leadership development program. Launched in 2008, the program enrolls 20 students in a two semester experience where students develop the tools needed to work as effective leaders. In the fall semester, JSR LEAD students participate in a program retreat, work on team building skills, attend the VCCS Student Leadership Conference, learn about corporate etiquette, enhance public speaking skills and participate in community service. In the spring semester, JSR LEAD students take SDV 109 which is a one-credit leadership development class. This class, which meets for eight weeks, includes such topics as leadership styles and theories, ethical decision making, communication, managing change, wellness and balance, gender and diversity in leadership, and conflict management. Students complete additional community service and have a final retreat to conclude their experience in JSR LEAD. JSR LEAD provides an opportunity for students to enhance or develop leadership skills while making lifelong friendships.
Getting involved not only within the school environment but also throughout
the larger community is a key component of the college experience. For
