The Jaycees provides opportunities for leadership development, community involvement, personal development, professional development and networking, and social networking. We develop new skills while creating positive change in our communities and establishing new business and social networks. Every project, every meeting, every experience expands the abilities of Jaycees and presents opportunities and choices. Actions are the results of choosing. Ideas are conceived. Beliefs are strengthened. Opinions are formed. Memories are made. Personal growth is achieved.
Chapter projects serve as a vehicle for hands-on learning. “Off-the-job” training while benefiting society is how Jaycee members transform classroom learning into self-improvement. All the skills to plan, promote, and manage a Jaycee project are directly transferable to real-life situations. Through their involvement, members have the opportunity to master the roles of managers, visionaries, coaches, educators, ambassadors and leaders by participating in countless and varied projects and hands-on training workshops that benefit communities worldwide.
