About the Jaycees
The Lake Geneva Jaycees Club was founded in 1962.
The Lake Geneva Jaycees Club was founded and incorporated in 1962. We are the premier organization in the Geneva Lakes area and have grown to be the largest Jaycee chapter in the state. The LG Jaycees are an active organization of 21-41 year old members who devote a portion of their time to community service in the interest of becoming better community leaders.
The Jaycees are winners of Best of Walworth County* for Best Non-Profit and Best Festival for Venetian Festival.
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 the community. With the creation of the Jaycees Venetian Festival on Geneva Lake in 1962, the Lake Geneva Jaycees have been able to raise funds to provide for a variety of community related projects and programs designed to help our neighbors and residents!
The Lake Geneva Jaycees are a 501 (c) (4), non-profit corporation that is a fully sanctioned chapter of the Wisconsin State JCI (Jaycees/United States Junior Chamber). We are a civic organization that raises money through various annual fund raising events, community events and member contributions. The revenue we derive each year is given back to our community in the form of various donations.
