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.

The Palatine Jaycees hold their monthly meetings the third Thursday of the month at Arlington Lanes Bowling Alley at 3435 N Kennicott Ave, Arlington Heights, IL 60004 at 7:30 pm. Join us to find out more about what we are about or visit one of our upcoming events. You can also reach out to us at info@palatinejaycees.org for more information.

The Jaycee Creed
By: C. William Brownfield
We Believe…
That faith in God gives meaning and purpose to human life;
That the brotherhood of man transcends the sovereignty of nations;
That economic justice can best be won by free men through free
That government should be of laws rather than of men;
That earth’s great treasure lies in human personality;
And that service to humanity is the best work of life!

To be the leading global network of active young citizens.
To provide development opportunities that empower young people to
create positive change.
