From a press release:

For 75 years, the Greater Scranton Junior Chamber, or the Greater Scranton Jaycees, has been providing development opportunities that empower young people to create positive sustainable change.

The Greater Scranton Jaycees is a not-for-profit leadership training organization that focuses on community service. It’s open to all young men and women, ages 18-41, residing in the greater Scranton area. Members can be found in all walks of life, but they all have important character traits in common: passion for making a difference, interest in being part of something bigger than themselves, and a desire to expand their horizons by being active in the community.

On Monday, July 11 from 5:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m., the group will hold a Cards & Cocktails business card exchange at Thirst T’s Bar & Grill (120 Lincoln St., Olyphant). There will be raffles, free appetizers, and the opportunity to make new friends, network, and learn about the Greater Scranton Jaycees.

The Greater Scranton Jaycees have been involved in and have planned numerous community activities, events, and fundraisers throughout the years, including Valentine’s Day visits to area assisted living homes, a holiday card project, Big Brother’s-Big Sister’s Bowl for Kids’ Sake, the Saint Joseph’s Center Festival, an annual Easter Egg Scramble, a La Festa Italiana tent, a pet supply drive for the True Friends Animal Shelter, and the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.

The organization is an extension of the United States Junior Chamber (U.S. Jaycees) and Junior Chamber International. Keeping in the Jaycee tradition, the Greater Scranton Jaycees are always looking for new members between the ages of 18-41 who share their passion for service to others. Those who are over 41 and are interested in volunteering may be eligible for their newly formed Executive Membership.
