JCI is an international non-profit organization of young active citizens who are “living, communicating, taking action and creating impact in our communities. This closely intertwined network helps these individuals make leaps and bounds of progress in their respective communities. Here in the Santa Clarita Valley our chapter seeks to strengthen this network by spotlighting the actions of individuals in our community. Please visit the website: scv40underforty.com to nominate.
Within the coming months past and current Jaycees will be sharing what it means to be a part of Junior Chamber International. Past immediate president and class of 2011 honoree, Shauna Criner shared, “Being a Jaycee has changed my life. I have developed leadership skills, communication skills, knowledge and friendships that will last a lifetime.” Criner’s story is similar to that of several past and current Jaycees.
