Mission Statement

The U.S. Junior Chamber of Commerce is a non-partisan, non-profit leadership-training organization for young adults between the ages of 21-40 that provides opportunities for personal development and achievement, and provides avenues for intelligent participation in the affairs of their community, state and nation, and opportunities to develop true friendship and understanding among young adults of all nations.

The West St. Louis County Jaycees is a local chapter in St. Louis County serving the cities of Ballwin, Ellisville, Wildwood, Chesterfield, Town & Country, Winchester and Manchester.

The Jaycees give a young person the chance to take on a leadership role in projects benefitting the community. The skills learned while chairing a Jaycee project can be used in the workplace, in public service, in service to community or church, or in a hundred other ways. The Jaycees also provide structured training programs and speakers that allow the individual to learn new skills.

The Junior Chamber of Commerce was founded in St. Louis in 1915 by Henry "Hy" Giessenbier. The organization has evolved into the premier Leadership Training organization for young people. There are Jaycee chapters all over the United States (U.S. Junior Chamber of Commerce) and the World (Junior Chamber International - JCI).
