President Dawn 

2021 Welcome Message

Front Logo for White or Light Background

It is with pleasure and enthusiasm that I serve you as the 90th State President of the Illinois Jaycees.

This year, the 2021 State Team and I will be working diligently to inspire members by restoring the image of what it means to be an Illinois Jaycee.


I believe every person offers a unique skill, experience, and diverse perspective. We will use this prospective to grow and strengthen our impact, our organization, and our community and leverage the true power of young active citizenship.

What makes the Illinois Jaycees unique is that we offer members the opportunity for individual growth while making an impact on your community. This has been our mission for over 100 years and is as relevant today as it was when the United States Junior Chamber was formed.

In 2020, we learned that we cannot live for tomorrow or worry about yesterday. Someday is too far and the future is never guaranteed. We must not let the past frustration or challenges control our potential actions and impact.

Do you want to become a member of the greatest young person’s organization in the world that provide you with development opportunities that empower YOU people to create positive change?

The moment is now, right here, right now…this time is ours…It is time to shine.

In Jaycee Spirit,

Dawn Stangle

90 th State President

Illinois Jaycees
