The Naperville Jaycees are a part of the United States Junior Chamber. a not-for-profit service organization with more than 120 young people dedicated to personal development through community service. The organization provides Naperville area residents with the opportunity to better themselves and to grow personally and professionally while giving through community service and fund raising efforts.
Some of those fundraising and volunteer efforts include the annual Easter Egg Hunt, Holiday Food Baskets and the always popular, Jaycees’ Last Fling – a family-friendly festival which takes place over Labor Day Weekend in and around Downtown Naperville.
Through their fundraising efforts, the Jaycees are able to donate funds to nonprofit organizations in the community and throughout DuPage County.
The group is always looking for more members, so if you’re interested, the general meetings are usually held on the second Tuesday of every month, at the Naperville VFW Hall, at 908 West Jackson Avenue. Once you’ve attended two meetings, you are entitled to be sworn in as a member.
Once Jaycees turn 41 years of age, they ‘age-out’ of the organization, but can still stay involved as a Rooster.
