The United States Junior Chamber (JCs or more commonly Jaycees) is a leadership training and civic organization for people between the ages of 18 and 40. Areas of emphasis are business development, management skills, individual training, community service, and international connections. The U.S. Junior Chamber is a not for profit corporation organization as described under Internal Revenue Code 501(c)(4).
Established January 21, 1920 to provide opportunities for young men to develop personal and leadership skills through service to others, the Jaycees later expanded to include women after the United States Supreme Court ruled in the 1984 case Roberts vs. United States Jaycees that Minnesota could prohibit sex discrimination in private organizations. 1985 marked the final year of the U.S. Jaycee Women (also known as Jayceettes, Jayceens), an organization that lasted 10 years and at its convention in 1984 in Atlanta boasted 59,000 members.
