About us

The United States Junior Chamber (Jaycees) gives young people between the ages of 18 and 40 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. The U.S. Junior Chamber is a non-profit corporation/organization as described under IRS code 501


Established in 1920 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.

For the past 90 years, 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 Muscular Dystrophy Association and the March of Dimes. They have built parks, playgrounds, hospitals, ball fields, and housing for the elderly while conducting service and support programs in thousands of communities nationwide.

Jaycee Creed

  • We Believe:
    That faith in God gives meaning and purpose to human life;
    That the brotherhood of man transcends the Sovereignty of Nations;
    That economic justice can best be won by free men through free enterprise;
    That government should be of laws rather than of men;
    That Earth's great treasure lies in human personality;
    And that service to humanity is the best work of life.
    - W. Brownfield
