Welcome to the Illinois Jaycee Ambassadors!
The Ambassadors are a select organization of senior Jaycees, who work to foster interest in, and promote the growth of the Jaycee movement at the local, region, and state levels; and to render assistance to the Illinois Jaycees in the form of speakers, judges, advisors, trainers, or in any other manner requested.
What are the Jaycees?
The Jaycees – the Junior Chamber of Commerce – is a leadership development organization that uses community service projects as the means for learning and applying leadership skills learned in Jaycee individual and management development projects. Leadership development through community involvement has been the basis of the Jaycees since its inception in 1920. The goal of the Jaycees is to enable members to reach their full potential through networking and personal growth opportunities.
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.
