This group of junior high school sixth, seventh and eighth graders.

Moving toward the teen years, this group both enjoys cultural events including nights at the theater to view live performances like the Tuskegee Airmen stage play “FLY” but they also enjoy outdoor fun and play including hiking trips, train rides, and fun days at “Skyzone”. Building on the philanthropic models learned in their earlier Jack and Jill years, the tweens collectively volunteer over 100 hours of their time to local community service projects. This group of upward leaders are also recognized in the chapter as talents boldly taking the lead in chapter wide public presentations for speech, dance, spoken word and drama.
