Creating Positive Change

Since 1957, the Palatine Jaycees has been a group of active young citizens (21 to 40) providing leadership development and community service opportunities to its members. And, best of all, we have a ton of fun doing it! Involvement in the Palatine Jaycees is a great way to meet new people, build new friendships, learn new skills and make a positive impact in Palatine.
