Since 1920, young Americans have benefited through the Jaycees. The organization started in St. Louis, Missouri, with one young person's desire for a better life.
Henry Giessenbier, a bank teller trying to get ahead, thought practical management experience on a social level could help him and his community progress. He contacted other young people with his idea, and they became active in the area's civic affairs. The idea caught on and the organization grew.
Today the Jaycees continues its dedication to member and community improvement. In more than 4,000 communities throughout the country, men and women ages 21 to 40 are developing their personal and professional skills and helping fellow citizens through membership in the Jaycees.
The Jaycees offers limitless opportunities for professional and social outlets for today's young Americans. Now you can be part of this movement, too. Take advantage of all available opportunities that interest you. All you have to do is join.
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.
