The Greensboro Junior Chamber of Commerce or “Greensboro Jaycees” is an organization for young adults between the ages of 21 and 40 who seek to become active citizens. We become active citizens by partnering with local community leaders and organizations to participate in activities that address community needs.
Our major areas of community involvement include the following: improvement of health and safety, conservation, city beautification, promotion of patriotism, and leadership training for young professionals and entrepreneurs. The training of future community leaders is an important function of the organization. Civic leaders are invited to speak at meetings, after which group discussions take place. A speaker’s training committee conducts a program designed to teach techniques of effective public speaking, and there is training in the rules of parliamentary procedure.
The Greensboro Jaycees are affiliates of the North Carolina Jaycees and the Junior Chamber International or “JCI”. JCI is a world-wide nonprofit organization of young active citizens age 18 to 40 who are engaged and committed to creating impact in their communities.
