The Shelton Jaycees is an organization for young adults ages 21-40. The Jaycees provide opportunities for personal and professional development, networking, and community action.
The Shelton Jaycees have been serving their community and their members needs since 1954.
The Shelton Jaycees are also part of a state, national, and international organization that offers many additional opportunities.
The Shelton Jaycees have a long tradition of developing and updating our events to meet the needs of our community and our members. The Shelton Jaycees turn new ideas into action every year and invite all their members to participate.
Since most great community action starts with great leadership, the Jaycee organization takes a particular interest in providing their members with leadership skills . The Shelton Jaycees have produced many leaders in many fields. Some well known former Jaycees include the former U.S. Presidents Bill Clinton and Gerald Ford, Domino's Pizza mogul Tom Monaghan and Subway founder Fred Deluca, former Miss America Kaye Lani Rae Rafko- Wilson and basketball legend Larry Bird. The Jaycee organization is filled with success stories.
The Jaycees provide an organizational structure that creates an environment of constant change. Leadership positions are limited to one year terms where no officer may succeed themselves. This helps keep chapter program relevant and fresh while affording new members the opportunity to gain experience and adjust to the projects to match the interests of our members and our community's needs.
Our members can be as involved as little or much as they like. No one is required to volunteer. Members participate out of a true sense of opportunity not obligation.
There is a shortmonthly meeting to which anyone from the community is welcome to attend and find out what is on the agenda.
