By joining your NSHSS Chapter, you can become more involved with your high school, community, and the NSHSS organization. Each Chapter determines its own service and high school project. Do you see a need in your school? Is there something you want to add to make your community better? Bring those ideas to the chapter! Maybe you’re a leader with a wealth of ideas? Taking part in an NSHSS Chapter is a great way to develop your leadership skills, connect with peer scholars like you with similar interests, and gain valuable community service experiences. Join today and create the pathway you and your peers want and the legacy you wish leave behind.
