Community Service in the Winston-Salem Jaycees

The Jaycees believe “that service to humanity is the best work of life.” The Winston-Salem Jaycees have made this motto their chapter’s cornerstone. Hundreds of opportunities exist in Winston-Salem and the surrounding area, and the Winston-Salem Jaycees host projects throughout the year designed to give back to the community by conducting both community fundraising and community service. Serving the community alongside other young professionals enhances the volunteering experience and increases the fun!
