Why join?


Cystal says “I love the idea of working with the community, so Miranda didn’t have to persuade me too hard to join. I am glad to be a part of the little group whose work is BIG!”

“I joined the Hattiesburg Jaycees to meet new people and make new friends. I would also like to learn new skills and apply them to my life but mostly to make a difference. Being a Jaycee has given me the opportunity to give back to my community. Most people want to volunteer or help but don’t know where to start; that’s where the Jaycees come in. We seek out the needs of our community and use all of our resources to get the job done.”

Sarah joined the Jaycees for community service opportunities and to meet new people. She was looking for an organization that her whole family could enjoy. She is a mother of 2 young children; therefore, it is convenient that there is free babysitting offered during the meetings.

Tameka says, “My reasons for joining the Jaycees was to meet new people and get more involved in the Hattiesburg community. Being a member of the Hattiesburg Jaycees has helped build my confidence, and has given me the opportunity to form close relationships with people who are nothing like me.”

AJ joined for community service opportunities and to make new friends. He also enjoyed the fact that he could get into every USM home game for free!

Racheal became a member of the Jaycees to be with awesome people doing wonderful things for the community.

Jennifer is an Autism teacher at Oak Grove Middle School. She is a graduate of William Carey University, and has lived in Hattiesburg for ten years (after relocating from her hometown of Richton, MS).  Jennifer has recently become a consultant for Usborne Books and More, and joined the Jaycees to learn more about business and networking.

Wendy wanted to join the Jaycees because she loves to help people, and the community. She said “it gives me a good feeling and makes me feel blessed to help those in need.”

Miranda joined the Jaycees after attending one of the General Membership Meetings with a good friend who was currently an active member. She loved what they were about and thought it would be a great way to give back to her community.
