About the Omaha Jaycees

What we are all about

The Omaha Jaycees is the oldest young professional organization in the Omaha metro, building strong community leaders since 1921. We strive to create impactful change in the Omaha Community by creatively collaborating as ‘young professionals’ (21-40) to solve past, current, and future problems that we face as a city.

The Omaha Jaycees founded one of the oldest ‘young professional’ recognition programs in the country with TOYO – Ten Outstanding Young Omahans. The event, in it’s 86th year locally, grew nationally (TOYA) and internationally (TOYP).

Some of the other ongoing initiatives of the Omaha Jaycees are: Hometown Holidays benefiting the Nebraska Children’s Home Society, TOYO Teens awarding 10 scholarships annually, Beer & Bacon Festival with a revolving beneficiary, Tax Education Day starting March 2019.

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.
