To provide development opportunities that empower young people to create positive change.
To be the leading local network of young active citizens.
Our chapter is part of the state, regional, national, and international JCI organization. Each year, we provide individual development opportunities, chances for members to get involved in the local community as well as networking events. Our signature events include the annual Sandbox Drive, Bob Molinaro Memorial Scholarship for local high school seniors, Read Across America, Live to 9 concerts and the Waterloo Open Golf Tournament.
We believe that faith in God gives meaning and purpose to human life; that the brotherhood of man transcends the sovereignty of nations; that economic justice can best be won by free men through free enterprise; that government should be of laws rather than of men; that earth’s great treasure lies in human personality; and that service to humanity is the best work of life.
