About

Our mission: We inspire leadership growth through community involvement.

History

Established 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.

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 American Cancer Society, March of Dimes, and for catastrophe relief efforts. They have built parks, playgrounds, hospitals, ball fields, and housing for the elderly while conducting service and support programs in thousands of communities nationwide.

The Savannah Jaycees received its Charter in January of 1942. Our mission: We inspire leadership growth through community involvement. The Jaycees is a national and international organization made of up business men and women between the ages of 21 and 40. The United States Jaycees was founded in 1920.  The Jaycee vision is to be the leading global network of active young citizens.  The Jaycees was created to provide development opportunities that empower young people to create a positive change.
