The mission of the Jaycees is to provide development opportunities that empower young people to create positive change.
In order to accomplish this mission, the Bloomington-Normal Jaycees organize and run projects to benefit the community and chapter. In addition to benefiting the city and town, the individuals on the committee running the event have the opportunity to increase their leadership and managerial skills.
We run several yearly events, such as the Tulip 5k, Bruegala, and Thanksgiving baskets, we also run events the committee chairman have a passion for. Recently, we’ve run bowling fundraisers to benefit local charities, took youths from the Boy and Girls club shopping for school, and several trivia nights.
