The strength of the Jaycee movement lies in its individual members and not in the organization itself. While it is voluntary on the part of the part of the members to join the organization, there are certain inherent responsibilities of each and every member.
To actively participate in the chapter’s activities which means involvement and not mere attendance. To present the correct image of the movement in general and of his own chapter in particular, to any other individual or organization. To help in the propogation of the movement by attracting other young men into Jayceeism.
Towards the establishment of a permanent world peace.
“From within the walls of soul of this organization, wherein the foundation of character and citizenship are laid, I hope a message will come in the sometime of tomorrow that will stir the people towards the establishment of a permanent and everlasting world peace.” Giessenbier had the foresight to believe that character and citizenship could contribute towards a permanent world peace. His dream and purpose for the Jaycee were to offer the membership opportunities that would build strong, positive characters and a sense of citizenship, not only of communities, cities and countries, but of the whole world.
As per the Jaycees International Constitution, headed purpose of the Jaycees” affects the dream of the founder; The purpose of the Jaycees, inspired by the Declaration of Principles, shall be to contribute to the advancement of the global community by providing the opportunity for young people to develop the leadership skills, social responsibility, and fellowship necessary to create positive change.
The organization, in affirming its foundation of principles and recognizing the fundamental goal of founder Henry Giessenbier, Jr. commits itself to strive for a true and everlasting world peace. The organization operates on the premises that the development of individual character and personality will result in better developed communities and eventually a more peaceful world. Most educational institutions focus on the passing of an examination and amassing of degrees rather than the development of personalities. It is said that the purpose of educational is to prepare the individual for life; not just to able to perform a job. Life is much more than just doing a job. Life is caring, sharing, loving, understanding and communicating. The Jaycees strive to complete any lack in the development of its individual members.
Jaycees is a people organization. People resort to violence than communication, understanding, patience, tolerance, reason and love cease to exist. The Jaycee plan is to offer opportunities to the members that will reinforce these qualities. If the Jaycee organization can be described as a University of Life, the students are its members, the curriculum is Leadership Development and its campus, the World. The idea is to bring people together. Many opportunities are created for people with various social, cultural, ethnic, religious, economic and national backgrounds to meet. At national Conventions, area conferences, and world congresses, members come face to face with one another and have a chance to share experiences and exchange ideas which lead to better understanding and co-operation. A bond of brotherhood and genuine friendship is established as Jaycees seek the ways and means to improve themselves and the world in which they live.
That all human being can be developed. That all are equal. That the world is interdependent. That the world does not belong to man, but man belongs to the world. And consequently, every man is a citizen of the world.
