(in the US) They don't. Depending on the state, jurors are picked either from the pool of registered voters, or the DMV drivers license files.

It depends on the laws of the individual states. Some will pick random registered voters, and others pick random people who are registered for a driver license.

What are the activities that involve jurors before the trial?

Jurors aren't referred to as "jurors" until the are empanelled for a trial. Up until that time they are PROSPECTIVE JURORS or, MEMBERS OF THE JURY POOL. They are chosen at random from (depending on the state) the voter registration lists or drivers' license lists of their states and sent summonses to appear for jury service. When a jury is needed for a trial several dozen will be selected (again, at random) and those will undergo a process known as VOIRE DIRE, where they are questioned by the defense and prosecution/plaintiff attorneys in an effort to weed out those they think may be the best candidates to hear their case. After that process is complete, both attorneys approach the judge and make their selections. Once the correct number is seated for that particular trial the un-selected group returns to the jury assembly room for possible calls for service in other case. The ones chosen (the number can vary according to the type of trial and state statute) and they are then sworn in by the presiding judge and they THEN become the JURY for that particular case.
