"Leadership Training through Community Involvement" is the Jaycee concept. Through organizing a variety of projects, our members gain leadership skills.
Most of our projects fall into three categories- Management Development, Community Development, and Individual Development. These areas reflect the balance between the member, chapter, and community that allows us to be effective in our work. Individual Development is about improving the individual skill level of the member; Management Development focuses on improving our leadership skills, operating our chapter, and promoting its goals; and Community Development is the end result of all of our efforts: to help others and improve Lansing.
For men and women between the ages of 21 and 40, the Lansing Jaycees offer leadership training through community development. By organizing a variety of programs and projects for the benefit of Lansing, our members learn leadership and management skills. The Lansing Jaycees is also a very social organization with lots of opportunities to meet new people.
The Lansing Jaycees, part of the Michigan Junior Chamber and Junior Chamber International (JCI), is an internationally recognized leadership organization that prides itself on building leaders through professional and personal development, community service and government and civic activities.
We are a membership-based nonprofit organization of 200,000 young people ages 18 to 40 in 5,000 communities and more than 100 countries around the world. Each JCI Member shares the belief that in order to create lasting positive change, we must improve ourselves and the world around us. We seek targeted solutions to the unique problems in our communities to build a better world, creating global impact.
