Students In Action is a national youth volunteer leadership, recognition and reward program, designed to pass the tradition of service on to the next generation.

Co-developed by Jefferson Awards for Public Service and Deloitte, it is now in over 250 High Schools.

Each spring, Student Leaders from the participating schools compete in regional competitions. They are asked to report on the implementation of the program, and the impact they've had, both in their schools and within their communities.
