CJSF Service
In compliance with CJSF Regulations as set fourth by the Board of Directors of the state-wide organization, American Martyrs School will no longer be requiring CJSF service as a condition for membership. Students will be accepted based on their academic merit, however, students who would like to remain "active" members of CJSF must complete certain number of meetings and service requirements (See below). Meeting days will be announced. Please check with the CJSF advisor.

Levels of Membership
Active: To be considered an active CJSF member, students must work towards the betterment of the AMS community through community service projects. These projects can support the school or a parish organization. In addition to community service, active members are expected to attend CJSF meetings on a regular basis.

Inactive: CJSF members who complete the academic requirements are automatically considered inactive unless they do community service and attend CJSF meetings.
