Our Guiding Principals
JCI North Carolina (the North Carolina Jaycees) is a not-for-profit organization of young active citizens. Our members, ages 18-40, develop themselves personally and professionally by bringing energy and insight to solving problems locally and around the world. Membership has been inclusive of all genders in the United States since 1984. Jaycees are not only members of their local chapter, but of the North Carolina Jaycees, the United States Junior Chamber, and Junior Chamber International (JCI), a worldwide federation of almost a quarter of a million young leaders and entrepreneurs, located in more than 5,000 communities in over 100 nations throughout the world, participating in projects, meetings, learning programs and events to help create positive change in our world.
