The Clive Jaycees is a leadership organization for young professionals in the greater Des Moines community, ages 21-40 years old.
We’re dedicated to community service, networking, personal and professional development and leadership training, but above all else having fun!
In the act of serving, members receive hands-on experience, which translates to the enhancement of personal growth and the development of valuable
leadership skills, all while growing friendships and having fun.
Our chapter is most commonly associated with our main fundraiser, Woofin' It 5k, an
annual event held in the spring and managed exclusively by our members.
The Clive Jaycees participate in various
community service events throughout the year. We also run our own events for the community such as youth sports competitions, Safe Halloween Party, Thanksgiving
and Christmas Food Basket distribution, Easter Egg Hunt and Adopt-A-Highway. We also offer two scholarships to local high school students. A sampling of the
organizations we support include:
- Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
- Mentor Iowa
- Heart Connection
- Animal Rescue League
- Hospice of Central Iowa
- Orchard Place
- Hope Ministries
- Blank Children's Hospital
- Greater Des Moines Partnership  - Clive Fire Department
The Clive Jaycees have various social events throughout the year such as Friday night socials,
movie night, dinner club, golf outings, wine and beer tastings, book club and much more so that our members can get to know one another and form lasting friendships.
The Clive Jaycees hold two chapter membership meetings on the second and fourth Mondays of the month. Our meetings are held at the
Dymond Safety Center (Police & Fire Station) at 8505 Harbach Blvd. just south of Linnan Park at 7 p.m. Meetings are followed by a social.
Contrary to what you might think, you do not have to be a Clive resident to join the Clive Jaycees. We have many members throughout
the greater Des Moines community. Becoming a Clive Jaycee gives you an opportunity to meet other professionals your age. We are a volunteer
organization so you may choose to participate in as many events as you’d like.
