Jr. Beta Club
The National Beta Club (often called “Beta Club” or simply “Beta”) is an organization for 4th through 12th grade students in the United States. Its purpose is “to promote the ideals of academic achievement, character, leadership and service among elementary and secondary school students.”
Jr. Beta Club is the name given to the clubs that are for grades 4th through 8th. The Jr. Beta Club at Canton works on teaching students the value of volunteer work and leading by example. The students work within the school and in the community to collect 10 or more hours of volunteer work. Being part of Jr. Beta Club means that a student is morally and academically sound and strives for excellence.
