The Jefferson Awards Students in Action program was created with the goals of promoting the value of volunteerism among youth and helping to double volunteerism in American high schools. The strategy is to create Jefferson Awards youth leadership teams in each high school to celebrate great volunteers, inspire others to get involved and help raise additional resources to expand volunteer activities in areas of need.
