The Jaycees are a network of adults, ages 21-39, who believe giving back to the community and developing leadership skills can be enjoyable and rewarding. Through volunteer support and public event coordination, the Jaycees raise funds and provide activities for the greater Oshkosh community while having a lot of fun.
The Oshkosh Jaycees are a social network of young adults, who believe community service should be a fun and rewarding experience. We volunteer. We lead. We have fun.
Our Vision: To become the organization of choice for young people, providing direction and leadership to our communities.
Our Mission: To provide an organized social network where young adults have the opportunity to improve personal, leadership, and management skills through peer-to-peer learning and actual experience by providing assistance to the Oshkosh community through public event coordination, volunteer support, and charitable redistribution of funds for the betterment of the community.
Jaycee Creed: We Believe: 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 greatest treasure lies in human personality; And that service to humanity is the best work of life!
