The Seattle Jaycees is a professional and personal development organization which provides young people with leadership and management training through community service and individual development.  We are devoted to community and individual involvement.

More than a service organization, Jaycees offers men and women ages 18 to 40 the opportunity for skill building and the satisfaction of helping and being part of a team.  Members can reach their fullest potential at home, at work, and as concerned contributors to their community.  They make contacts that open doors for more successful careers and the friendships developed last a lifetime.  Many find the time they spent involved in Jaycee projects to be the most satisfying of their lives.  Jaycee programs and projects are designed to benefit the individual member and the community.  Both prosper because Jaycee activities bring about an improved quality of life for everyone involved.

Vision Statement:  “To be the leading global network of active young citizens.” 

Mission Statement:  “To provide development opportunities that empower young people to create positive change.”


The Jaycee Creed


That faith in God gives meaning and purpose to human life;

That the brotherhood of man transcends the sovereignty of nations;

That economic justice can best be won by free men through free enterprise;

That government should be of laws rather than of men;

That earth’s great treasure lies in human personality;

And that service to humanity is the best work of life!
