The Jaycees are an organization of active citizens between the ages of 18-40 who wish to improve themselves and make new friends, all while serving charitable interests in our local communities. Our chapter caters to residents in Cayce, West Columbia, and the surrounding metropolitan Columbia area. We are always looking for new faces and fresh ideas to keep our chapter and projects growing. If you are looking to make lifelong friends and get involved in one of the world’s greatest community service organizations, please get in touch with us!
The Cayce-West Columbia Jaycees, or Junior Chamber of Commerce, is a non-profit organization that has offered leadership training through community service in the Cayce and West Columbia areas for over 58 years. The Jaycees give adults between the ages of 18 and 40 the tools they need to build the bridges of success for themselves in the areas of community service, individual development, management skills, and business connections. With the focus on volunteerism, the Jaycees are enlarging areas of opportunity for adults who want to not only improve themselves, but enrich the lives of others. Since 1957 our chapter has donated its time and money to such charities as Relay For Life, Harvest Hope, SisterCare, Families Helping Families, Support Our Troops, and Jaycee Camp Hope–a camp specifically designed for intellectually disabled children and adults–which is sponsored by the South Carolina Jaycees.
- Our vision is to be the leading global network of young active citizens.
- Our mission is to provide development opportunities that empower young people to create positive change.
The purpose of this website is to present our organization’s philosophies and beliefs, and to keep our members informed of all the meaningful events that our chapter sponsors and organizes.
