Shakopee Jaycees

For over 50 years, the Shakopee Jaycees has empowered young active citizens to create positive change in our community. From supporting our local parks, community services, and events, to helping fight poverty and illiteracy, to working in support of the UN Millennium Development Goals, our members tackle serious issues without hesitation. As an all-volunteer grassroots organization, the Jaycees offer the opportunity for a young person to find their own path in volunteering and service. As Jaycees, we believe that service to humanity is the best work of life, and we strive to bring young leaders together in the pursuit of positive change.
