Carlos OrozcoI hope this message finds you well. Summer is here and we are set to reap the benefits of fun in the sun and an array of opportunities to participate in and support our local community.

JCI Santa Clarita is proud to announce a partnership with LEAP Children’s Museum, a grassroots organization currently working on building a children’s museum here in Santa Clarita. It promises to provide children with opportunities to grow through experiential learning, as well as education in the a variety of fields including science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics. Furthermore, LEAP is tying all of the installations to career readiness.

As holiday travel increases, so too will our efforts to provide meaningful contribution to our community through our dedicated partnerships and leadership opportunities. With many families already starting their holiday traveling as the schools in our area release students for summer break, we know this is a busy time of year. However, with the right team, our JCI members, we know how to make every volunteer opportunity impactful, fun, and educational. Check out some of our upcoming events below and be sure to RSVP for those that call to you. Don’t forget about membership-exclusive items, like our Social Club, for fun ways to beat the heat and mingle with other members.

Thank you for your continued dedication to JCI Santa Clarita. Hope to see you at our next event!

Yours in Jaycees,

Carlos Orozco

2024 President of JCI Santa Clarita
