Mission Statement

JCI USA provides development opportunists for young people to create positive change.

Description

JCI USA gives young people between the ages of 18 and 40 the tools they need to build the bridges of success for themselves in the areas of business development, management skills, individual training, community service, and international connections. JCI USA is a non-profit corporation/organization as described under IRS code 501

Established in 1920 to provide opportunities for young men to develop personal and leadership skills through service to others, JCI USA, also known as the Jaycees, later expanded to include women, reflecting the growing influence and leadership of women in America.

For the past 98 years, JCI USA members have been a force for good in America and around the world. Jaycees helped establish AirMail services in America with member Charles Lindbergh, and have raised millions of dollars for causes such as the Muscular Dystrophy Association and the March of Dimes. They have built parks, playgrounds, hospitals, ball fields, and housing for the elderly while conducting service and support programs in thousands of communities nationwide.

With the focus of the nation on volunteerism, from the smallest towns to the largest cities, JCI USA members are enlarging areas of opportunity for young people.
