President’s Welcome

Welcome to the 2019 Kankakee Area Jaycees! As you know, we are a leadership organization that creates projects for community improvement, equipping its members with the skills and resources to create a positive impact. Our chapter has doubled in the course of the past few months purely by word of mouth and by our projects led by people who want to create the solutions rather than complain about the problems. Our chapter has already been bursting with ideas, and we already have projects to kick start the year. A strong focus this year is to teach each of our members the leadership skills that will improve their understanding of project management. We also have trainings led by experts in their fields lined up for this year. While many individuals feel as if they do not have time to create an impact, the power in numbers tells us otherwise. No single individual can change the world, but we can all contribute to the solution. I’m so glad you have joined us in making a lasting impact in your communities!  

 –Amber Cahue, President
