Mission Statement

To provide young people the opportunity to develop personal and leadership skills through local community action and organizational involvement while expanding the Junior Chamber movement.

Description

True Friendship

It's often who you know that matters in life and Jaycees are people who are connected. Serving as a Jaycee provides the opportunity to develop strong relationships to other Jaycees who are often people of influence. Members share a very real connection with all other members, past and present: President Bill Clinton, Domino's Pizza mogul Tom Monaghan, registered nurse and former Miss America Kaye Lani Rae Rafko-Wilson, sports legends like basketball great Larry Bird - name the field and Jaycees can be found at the forefront.

Business Development

Jaycees have turned their energies toward making a difference especially in the area of business. With the development of the Junior Chamber Center for Business Advancement, the Jaycees have taken the next step to furthering the personal and professional lives of members through the entrepreneurship, networking, and investing programs.

Career Advancement

The Jaycees have also developed a program geared toward teaching members how to utilize the many skills they develop through the organization in the success of their career. The program provides practical and easy-to-implement tips and strategies to creating a successful career plan and implementing it.

Community Service

Jaycees have built parks, playgrounds, hospitals, ball fields, and housing for the elderly while conducting service and support programs in thousands of communities across the nation. They helped establish AirMail services in America with Jaycee Charles Lindbergh, and have raised millions of dollars for causes such as the Muscular Dystrophy Association, March of Dimes, and the Junior Chamber Mission Inn Foundation.

Your ideas give you a chance, your involvement as a member in a local Jaycee chapter gives you the experience, and as a member of Junior Chamber International, we give you the World.
