The Nacogdoches Jaycees
The Nacogdoches Junior Chamber (Jaycees) gives young people between the ages of 18 and 40 the tools they need to build the bridges of success for themselves in the areas of business development, management skills, individual training, community service, and international connections.
Have a look at our latest Newsletter for month to month Jaycees Business.
Henry “Hy” Giessenbier visualized an organization that would allow young men to develop their business skills and reputations in the community.
In his era, most young men were out of school and working by the age of 15. Their first jobs were most likely the jobs they held throughout their lives.
With luck and hard work, some might reach executive
positions by their forties. Giessenbier felt that
young men were not receiving the opportunities
necessary to develop their skills at a younger age,
thus depriving our nation of an important resource,
and so he formed the founding ideals of the U.S.
The Jaycees creed
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.
