The United States Junior Chamber exists for active young citizens ages 18 to 40, who bring energy and insight to solving problems locally and around the world. We believe we can and should address the needs of others.

Becoming a member of the Jaycees is a step in the right direction if you’re looking to branch out, meet new people, become a civic leader, find new challenges, develop professional skills and make new connections locally, nationally and internationally. The opportunities are endless when you join the Jaycees.

Our mission is to empower young active citizens to create positive change in their communities. Our members offer targeted, sustainable solutions that achieve results. From poverty to illiteracy to the UN Millennium Development Goals, our members tackle serious issues without hesitation.

The Jaycees is an international organization. Junior Chamber International (JCI) is our international arm, with nearly 200,000 young active citizens and over five million alumni – including several world leaders. JCI chapters are spread over more than 5,000 local communities and over 100 countries around the world.
