Mission Statement

To provide quality trainings through community service.

Description

The Lancaster Junior Chamber (Jaycees) gives young adults 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. Established to provide opportunities for young men to develop personal and leadership skills through service to others, the Jaycees later expanded to include women, reflecting the growing influence and leadership of women in America. Jaycees have been a force for good in America and around the world. Jaycees helped establish Airmail services in America with Jaycee

Charles Lindbergh, and have raised millions of dollars for causes such as the American Cancer Society, March of Dimes, and for catastrophe relief efforts. They have built parks, playgrounds, hospitals, ball fields, and housing for the elderly while conducting service and support programs in thousands of communities nationwide.

The Lancaster Jaycees have been developing young leaders in the Lancaster Community since 1940. Members of the Lancaster Jaycees have many opportunities to achieve their goals and develop their skills. Whether you are interested in being a chapter officer, or simply working on a project committee, you will have the chance to learn skills ranging from marketing to personnel management and more! Every member has unique talents to offer, and we provide them the freedom to contribute them in any way, from training other members, to creatively using them in programs and projects.

It's often who you know that matters, and Jaycees are people who are connected. Serving as a Jaycee provides the opportunity to develop strong relationships with other Jaycees, who are often people of influence. Members of our organization have gone on to do great things and include: ¨ Presidents Gerald Ford and Bill Clinton ¨ Tom Monaghan - Domino's Pizza Mogul ¨ Kaye Lani Rae Rafko-Wilson - former Miss America and Registered Nurse ¨ Larry Bird - Basketball legend The Lancaster Jaycees are part of the Ohio State Jaycees, and are affiliated with The United States Junior Chamber and Junior Chamber International.
