The answer is simple, anyone.
Jaycees come from all sectors of society. They are individuals who are invested in the future of our world; they are active citizens who want to make a positive change by donating their time and talents. Members on average give 4 hours of their time per month to attend the general meeting, socials, and one committee meeting or project execution. General members comprise of members aged 18-40 while associate members are anyone over the age of 40.
Again, the answer is simple, the opportunities.

Every November, members from across the globe come together for the peak of the JCI year at JCI World Congress. At this global forum international officers will be elected for the upcoming year. JCI Members also explore ideas for international initiatives and recognize the achievements of outstanding active citizens. With JCI in more than 100 countries and territories, members have the opportunity to meet fellow citizens from highly diverse backgrounds. JCI Members will share experiences and find new ways to create positive change on both local and global levels.
I joined JCI Woodstock IL to give back to community and to show my children that civic involvement is important. One thing I love about being a Jaycee is being able to help my community with my children. An unexpected benefit I have gotten from being a Jaycee are all the skills I have learned and all the close friends I have made.
I never knew the opportunity of leaving a beneficial footprint within the community until I joined JCI Woodstock IL. It is all about networking and bringing everyone together to achieve a common goal. I am looking forward to mentoring others in order for them to achieve the goals they want to.
Jaycee membership is such a great gift to give yourself! I just joined less than one month ago and have already taken part in a social and a volunteer event. I have had at least 3 other opportunities to mingle and share ideas with these wonderful people. I instantly felt welcomed and accepted. It’s been one of my best decision in the past few years.
