If you want to do more, experience more, and accomplish more every day, you should invest your time in the Jaycees!
The Mason City Junior Chamber (the Jaycees) is a young people-building organization for those aged 21-40. We positively impact the community we live in, the people we are, and the people we will become. Through community and personal development projects, we are building a better Mason City and the world around us, one leader at a time.
Ultimately, what an individual gets out of the Jaycees is what he or she puts into it. Involvement in the organization has the great potential to reap huge benefits for individuals and their surrounding community.
