Membership in the NJHS is both an honor and a responsibility. As a member, you are expected to demonstrate the qualities of scholarship, service, citizenship, leadership, and character at all times.

Service can be described in various ways. In the routine of the day’s work, many opportunities arise to help others. Willingness to work for the benefit of those in need, without monetary compensation, or without recognition, is the quality we seek in our membership. We are committed to the idea of volunteering our time and abilities to the creation of a better tomorrow.
