Junior Chamber International of Santa Clarita, also known as the “The Jaycees,” is celebrating after holding several successful events and is thrilled to announce some exciting new opportunities to connect with young leaders.
On March 1st, President Taylor Kellstrom and the Jaycees Manager at Large Sharlene Duzick held a successful training at College of the Canyons (COC). The training with COC Civic Engagement Students focused on Project Management. Student leaders had a chance to learn how to use a Project Management Guide (PMG) that JCI Santa Clarita uses for events they run.
The following week, the Jaycees welcomed Todd Wilson from Feed SCV at their March General Membership Meeting. Todd shared with the chapter how Feed SCV came to be and its mission to provide everyone in the Santa Clarita Valley with the knowledge and resources to have a delicious and healthy meal at home every day. The Jaycees are planning on working with Feed SCV more closely this year and exploring ways of working together. Members also welcome prospective new members, including some students from COCs Civic Engagement Group.
