Affiliated with Junior Chamber International and the United States Junior Chamber, the Omaha Jaycees – also called the Omaha Junior Chamber of Commerce – is the oldest young professional organization in the Omaha metro, building strong community leaders since 1921. We have a membership of over 100 individuals ages 21-40 in Douglas, Sarpy and surrounding counties.
The Omaha Jaycees help enrich the community through individual development, community involvement, management opportunities, and networking events. With opportunities for networking, training, and volunteering, the Jaycees can help you grow both personally and professionally.
Professionally, members can network with professionals from around the world in a variety of fields including: banking professionals, lawyers, military, psychologist, teachers, CEO’s of companies, and many more. Members can learn management skills by running projects both large and small. Personal growth is achieved by personal and professional trainings offered locally, at the state, national, and international level.
What separates the Jaycees from other young professional groups is our commitment to improving our community. Plus, the Omaha Jaycees is part of the national and international Jaycees with chapters in over 175 countries.
