How will the Jaycees Benefit Me?

Meet People and Make Friends: This is one of the top reasons our members join the Jaycees; And with over 200,000 active members and millions of alumni worldwide, it is easy to find people you like or want to be around. Click here to see our events page & calendar!

Community Service Opportunities: Each local Jaycees chapter (find one near you here!) has their own signature projects, and members are given the opportunities to create new projects that are near and dear to them.

Flexibility: Your participation depends on your schedule, not ours.  You will get out of the organization what you put into it and we hope, more!  You decide what you want that to be.

Networking: How many times have you heard “it’s not what you know, but who you know”?  As Jaycees, we have many opportunities to interact with the movers and shakers of our communities. Our members also come from many different industries and professions and are a great group of people to get to know.  In addition we have chapters across the state, the nation and the world.  In more than 5,000 communities in over 110 countries worldwide and with millions of alumni the Jaycees offer its members with largest most diverse networking opportunities in the world.  In fact we have international conferences dedicated for making connections globally.

Resume Building:  Do you want to prove that you have project management skills?  How about telling your employers that you planned and carried out an event in which 20,000 people were in attendance?  For people who want to make a more formal commitment, members have the opportunity to run for the Board of Directors so they can take a more active role in the planning, running and direction of the organization.

Learn New Skills: We encourage people to stretch their comfort zones and take on things they’ve never done before.  From news writing to finance to marketing, our members are always taking on new roles and learning new skills.  We also offer many one-day events to teach people things like CPR, Internet basics, car maintenance and a whole host of other things.
