The Collinsville Junior Chamber of Commerce (Jaycees) is a civic organization that provides young people with the opportunity to develop personal and leadership skills through local community service and organizational involvement while expanding the Jaycees movement. The Collinsville Jaycees are affiliated with the United States Junior Chamber of Commerce.
The Jaycees are young men and women between the ages of 18 and 41 who are given opportunities for individual and professional development through personal achievement.
Our goals are realized by offering programs in Management, Community Service, and Individual Development that are specifically designed to assist members in achieving their potential as leaders and encourage their involvement in meaningful activities ranging from community service and environmental awareness to recreation and of course, social interaction. The projects that we hold give our members excellent opportunities to grow both personally and professionally. Being a part of the planning helps increase skills in time management, organization, and communication. As our members work at the community service projects, friendships are created. Many times these friendships are ones that will last throughout the years. So while we are helping the community and learning skills that will help us throughout all of our lives, we are having fun while doing so.
