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.
