HISTORY

Formed in 1929, JCI St Paul (aka Saint Paul Jaycees) offers its members opportunities to serve their communities, establish rewarding friendships and create professional contacts through one of the Metro's leading sources for networking (see more on networking below). Membership is limited to those who are 18-40, after that you become an alumni member.

The Jaycees have proven to be a driving force behind many Twin Cities traditions. The School Patrol Parade and Picnic, started by the Saint Paul Jaycees, continues to be an annual event to this day. The Saint Paul Winter Carnival was restarted in 1936 by the St Paul Jaycees and is now a world-famous event. Others, like the Les Farrington Best 100 Juried Art Exhibition, Holiday Party for Special Olympians, and many more, are growing and positively affecting more and more Twin Cities residents each year. And catch us at events like Grand Old Day, Summit Backyard Bash, Stone Arch Festival of the Arts and others throughout the year too!

INVOLVEMENT

Three ways members can get involved:

  • Community Involvement: Volunteer for community events like parades or clean-up projects, events we host with metro libraries, youth sports events, arts projects, or any of the many other community events we organize each year.

  • Individual Development: Social activities and personal development are in this area. Go canoing, attend a social, do some bowling, or hear a speaker. If you're new to the area or are looking to meet new friends we offer many, many activities to bring other young adults together.

  • Management Development: Help fundraise for the Jaycees to be able to give back to the community through donations and hosting service events, network with business owners and gain valuable leadership skills at the same time.

Members are rewarded with:
  • Skills that enhancing your personal and professional growth
  • Making a difference in your community
  • Gaining an appreciation and better understanding of the issues in today's society

* Please do not let the low numbers of people signed up scare you off. Many of our members do not sign up for events through this meetup site. Many volunteers sign up on Facebook. Check us out on our Facebook Page too.

NETWORKING

By joining the Jaycees, members are immediately given a great place to network - both socially and professionally. While the social networking aspect may be more evident - i.e. volunteer at events, attend membership meetings, etc ... ; career or business networking is also a large part of the Jaycees and one of the largest networking outlets in the Metro.

While social networking events are usually more structured through scheduled events, business networking tends to be more informal with the Saint Paul Jaycees. But business and professional networking is thriving!

By meeting and interacting with fellow members you are meeting people from many professions and many businesses. Among our membership are lawyers, Realtors, chiropractors, marketing professionals, technical analysts, auditors, IT professionals, nonprofit workers and many more. So by joining the Saint Paul Jaycees, and actively participating in all we have to offer, you are able to network with a wide array of other professionals in the Twin Cities.
