The Junior Chamber of Commerce (the Jaycees) is one of the most active young adults’ organizations, offering the best opportunities for volunteerism, community service, and leadership training to men and women between the ages of 21 and 41.  The Jaycees give young people 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.

Jaycees offers many wonderful opportunities for:

  • Friendship
  • Networking
  • Leadership Training
  • Community Service
  • Team Building

It is the Mission of the Gaston County Jaycees (formerly the Gastonia Jaycees) and Jaycees around the World to promote and enhance the leadership abilities of our members while making our perspective communities a better place in which to live and work.  With the focus of the nation on volunteerism, from the smallest town to the largest cities, the Jaycees are enlarging areas of opportunities for young people.
