Begin Creating Positive Change

Joining the Jaycees is simple, just find a local chapter and introduce yourself at a General Membership Meeting (GMM). You can check for a chapter in your community  by checking out the JCI Iowa Chapters page under the "More" Sections above or click on the button below.


Local Impact

Our chapters live out our mission: to provide development opportunities for young people to create positive change. Each chapter gets involved in their communities at the local level to make an impact in their communities, with projects such as sandbox fills, Easter egg hunts, Independence Day fireworks, school supply drives, Letters to Santa, and much more. Our members not only learn project management skills from leading these impact projects, but also develop their personal and professional skills and networks along the way. 


Real People. Real Opportunities.

Looking to meet other young people from around Iowa and have an impact in your community? Our organization gives young active citizens the tools and support they need to build the bridges of success in the areas of business development, management, leadership and personal training, community and government involvement. For 90 years, the Junior Chamber has been the original organization of choice for young active citizens (ages 18-40) in Iowa, providing direction and leadership for our communities, our state, and our world!
