Central Montana Jaycees

The Central Montana Jaycees are a community-centered non-profit organization focusing on "Building Tomorrow's Leaders Today." They have a grant program that helps support other non-profits and are dedicated to fostering personal growth and civic leadership among people ages 18-40.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED

Come to any open meeting on the first Tuesday of every month at 6:30pm, currently held at the Boys & Girls Club until the weather improves and we move our meetings to the park. Kids are welcome!

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

The Jaycees put on the Beer Gardens at the Central Montana Fair and the Community Benefit Raffle and have our grant and essay contest committees, as well as other opportunities as they arise.

REQUIREMENTS AND RESTRICTIONS

There are quarterly dues to join, however, if you are an active member you pay only once and the organization covers your dues from then on until you age out or become inactive. Initial dues are $27.50 per person.

No experience is necessary, we just ask for enthusiasm! The Jaycees are a world-wide organization with the set age limit of 18-40. At 40 there is an opportunity to remain involved under the category of "Senator" which is a title your chapter votes you in for if you qualify through years of active service!

TIME COMMITMENT

Whatever you are willing to put in! The Jaycees have a meeting once a month that's roughly an hour; other than that a person chooses what more they'd like to participate in.

MAIN EVENTS

The reoccurring events are the Central Montana Fair Beer Gardens (the last week in July) and the Community Benefit Raffle in September. There is also a grant committee in January of each year to review applications and award grant monies.
