The Wyandotte Jaycees are an organization comprised of people whose collective goal is to promote the welfare of our communities in Wyandotte and other Downriver cities through the completion of proactive community betterment projects. By participating in these activities, the people of our communities develop personal and professional leadership skills, heighten their civic awareness and showcase their contributions as exemplary citizens. Thus, the overriding purpose of the Wyandotte Jaycees is to facilitate in each of its members' individual development through involvement in community affairs.
Members of the Wyandotte Jaycees are young adults ages 21-40 who want to make a positive difference in our community. We're also friends who have a lot of fun together! Our friendships grow as we participate in community service projects, plan seminars, go to socials, and team up for recreational activities. The Wyandotte Jaycees is also a leadership training organization. Much of the leadership training is accomplished through planning and participating in projects and/or committees. Other leadership skills are learned by serving on the Board of Directors. The Wyandotte Jaycees is not just a local group. We're also affiliated with the Michigan Jaycees, the U.S. Jaycees, and Junior Chamber International. These organizations provide additional events and ways to get involved.
