About the Jaycees

Who are the Peoria Jaycees?

If you are enthusiastic, want to give back to the community, and have a knack for leadership, the Peoria Jaycees are for you! Get ready to join the greatest young persons organization in the world.

The Peoria Jaycees are a group focused on the betterment of our community and ourselves in central Illinois. Ranging in age from 21-40, we run projects in the Peoria, IL area to raise money and awareness for local charities, provide opportunities for leadership development for our members, and host events to improve our community. Don’t worry, you can still get involved if you are over 40 as an associate member.

We encourage our members to chair and help with projects, as well as run for a position on our board. Not only are the Jaycees a great resume builder, but it also allows you to give back.

If you would like to attend one of our meetings to see what we are all about, join us at a meeting or event. See what we are planning and join the fun. Check out the calendar here. 

The Peoria Jaycees are part of the international organization Junior Chamber International (JCI).

Community events include Bunny Hop, Deck the Bars, Firecracker 5000 5k, Das Bier Run 5k, the Peoria Jaycees International Beer Festival, and more.
