About the Lake Geneva Jaycees

The Lake Geneva Jaycees Club was founded in 1962.   We are the young persons group of choice in the Geneva Lakes area!! We are a constructive action organization of young persons who devote a portion of their time to community service in the public interest developing young persons as leaders in their communities. Best of Walworth County

The purpose of the Lake Geneva Jaycees is to become a force for good in the community, determining community needs and providing solutions by planning and facilitating community service projects. In the act of serving, members receive hands-on experience, which translates to the enhancement of personal growth and the development of valuable leadership skills.   Since its inception the Lake Geneva Jaycees have worked hard to help give back to our community.   With the creation of the Jaycees Venetian Festival on Geneva Lake in 1962, the Lake Geneva Jaycee have been able to raise funds to provide for a variety of community related projects and programs designed to help our neighbors and residents!   For a complete list of the many donations your local Lake Geneva Jaycees make throughout the year click here.

About the Jaycees

About the Jaycees The United States Junior Chamber (Jaycees) gives young people between the ages of 18 and 40 the tools they need to build the bridges of success for themselves in the areas of business development, management skills, individual training, community service, and international connections. The U.S. Junior Chamber is a non-profit corporation/organization as described under IRS code 501

Established in 1920 to provide opportunities for young men to develop personal and leadership skills through service to others, the Jaycees later expanded to include women, reflecting the growing influence and leadership of women in America.

For the past 86 years, Jaycees have been a force for good in America and around the world. Jaycees helped establish AirMail services in America with Jaycee Charles Lindbergh, and have raised millions of dollars for causes such as the Muscular Dystrophy Association and the March of Dimes. They have built parks, playgrounds, hospitals, ball fields, and housing for the elderly while conducting service and support programs in thousands of communities nationwide.

Jaycees can be found in all walks of life: governmental leaders such as past Presidents Bill Clinton and Gerald Ford, business tycoons such as Domino’s Pizza mogul Tom Monaghan, registered nurse and former Miss America Kaye Lani Rae Rafko-Wilson, sports heroes like basketball great Larry Bird – name the field and Jaycees can be found at the forefront.

With the focus of the nation on volunteerism, from the smallest towns to the largest cities, the Jaycees are enlarging areas of opportunity for young people.
