About Us

We’ve been here since 1932, and we’re glad you’re taking the time to get to know us.
What’s a Jaycee? Our organization is the Kalamazoo chapter of Junior Chamber International or JCI. We are the local chapter under JCI Michigan, JCI USA, and our parent organization JCI. Members are affectionately known as “Jaycees.” We are the leading global network of young active citizens. Members in Kalamazoo are between the ages of 18 and 40. Our focus is on developing ourselves as leaders through our experiences within JCI.

JCI Kalamazoo wants to make a difference. Whether it’s through volunteering, raising money for worthwhile causes, gaining valuable leadership experience or making new friends, we’re looking to make a difference in our lives and in our community. We are today’s young active citizens and tomorrows community leaders
