About Us

The Hutchinson Chapter of the U.S. Junior Chamber (Jaycees) is a non-profit/civic volunteer organization committed to supporting youth in the community of Hutchinson. Our fundraising efforts and monies raised are returned to the youth.

Our Mission

Our mission is to positively impact the lives of the youth in Hutchinson.

We work together as young adults (ages 18 – 40) to help each other build skills such as leadership, business development, volunteerism, and interpersonal communication.  We are developing the next generation of leaders by providing opportunities to volunteer and take initiative in our community.  We motivate others towards success in the organization, at their workplaces, and in their personal lives.

We are actively involved in promoting and facilitating community events with a focus on children’s activities. Some of our events include:

  • Casino Night (annual fundraiser)
  • Sandbox Fill
  • Flower Sales (annual fundraiser)
  • Activities at the Hutchinson Jaycee Water Carnival

The Jaycee Creed

That faith in God gives meaning and
purpose to human life;
That the brotherhood of man transcends
the sovereignty of nations;
That economic justice can best be won by
free men through free enterprise;
That government should be of laws
rather than of men;
That earth’s great treasure lies in
human personality;
And that service to humanity is the
best work of life.

Financial Support

The money we raise is awarded towards supporting local youth activities and initiatives. Examples include: newspaper subscriptions for local elementary schools, Girl Scouts & Boy Scouts, Hutchinson Police, Dollars for Scholars, Junior Achievement, purchasing band and choir equipment, and youth athletic teams. Our mission is to positively impact the lives of the youth in Hutchinson. We organize fundraisers so that we can donate funds for youth activities in our community.

  • 2021 $10,000
  • 2020 $5,325
