The Dubuque Jaycees is dedicated to the personal and professional growth of young people. The goal of the Jaycees is to provide leadership training through community service. What sets the Junior Chamber apart from other organizations is a focus on individual development. While most volunteer groups offer community service and social activities, the Jaycees offers its members the opportunity to improve themselves. By chairing a local project, a young person can practice organization, delegation, time and resource management, public relations and motivational skills. Training programs are usually offered by the Jaycees, usually at no cost to the member, that also teach these skills. Projects include The 3rd of July Air Show and Fireworks, Hooley Hustle 5k, America’s River Festival, Dubuque and All That Jazz, The Dubuque Jaycee Community Garden, Hills and Dales Easter Egg hunt, Washington Park Holiday decorating.
