History of the Jaycees:
The Jaycees, Junior Chamber of Commerce was developed in 1920 by Henry Giessenbier. His vision was to provide young adults, ages 18-40 with leadership through community service in four areas of opportunity: Business, Individual, Community and International. In 1959, JCI Wisconsin became a part of the U.S. Junior Chamber and Junior Chamber International (JCI), a worldwide federation of young professionals and entrepreneurs. The Burlington chapter was established just 2 years after in 1961.
