Jaycees (Young Professionals)

Who are the Jaycees?

The New Braunfels Jaycees (Junior Chamber) is the community’s young professionals organization. They create an environment for aspiring leaders to grow their network, engage in the community, develop professionally, and create a better New Braunfels through volunteerism and philanthropy.

What do they do?

The Jaycees hold monthly Leadership Luncheons, monthly networking mixers, quarterly volunteer days, and special events such as the New Braunfels Beer Run and the Rising Stars of New Braunfels Gala. In 2020 the Jaycees' Philanthropy Committee donated $8,000 to local non-profits. All funds raised through Jaycees activities are returned back to the community through donations to local nonprofit organizations.

How do I join?

Annual membership dues are just $200. This includes a meal at each monthly Leadership Luncheon and appetizers at all the mixers. Click here to fill out a membership application. Questions? Email
