Training is the nerve of this organization, Training is the Strength of this organization, Training, exclusively for the members is only in this Organization. In the cloudy, misty, hasty, fluid environment where the most certain thing is uncertainty, Leaders are required to lead the mass towards total peace and global harmony. Hay way people are prepared to go behind any Leader, but there are rare quality Leaders to lead a mass towards good causes. Jaycees is one organization which grooms its members by conducting Training workshops to be better citizens by themselves so that they can impart training to the needy. One such programme is SPEECH CRAFT, CAP (Chairman and Parliamentarian) etc I personally and for that matter any one who aspires to learn & grow love this organization for the training opportunities available in this organization for our own self development. Learning is knowledge no matter the means, Learning is a continuous process till one becomes extinct. 2003 year NP has also told in one of the meeting that never hesitate to spend time and money for Jaycees Programmes as they are Investment for Growth.

Come Join Jaycees We will grow together, as we strongly believe that We grow by growing others.

GROWING OLD IS MANDATORY, GROWING UP IS OPTIONAL, WITHOUT GROWTH THERE IS NO PROSPERITY
