What is JCYM?

 

See what our long-term members & new members

have to say...

 

  • I have enjoyed every moment of JCYM, the friendship, the programs, the leadership and, most of all, the many ways of giving of one ’s self…. 

  • JCYM is passionate about doing for others, both within our community and within our organization.… I treasure them for that compassion.  

  • We play together; work together and the rewards from our philanthropies are limitless. 

  • I feel I receive more than I give.  When someone in JCYM has a care or concern, the love and support is amazing.   

  • Giving, caring, loving friends 

  • JCYM allows me to balance my career and family….  We have a common goal to serve our neighbors in need.  

  • Requirements are easy…. exposed me to my community and its needs, to new friends who support each other and still allows me to enjoy my family.  

  • JCYM is the sorority I didn't belong to in college.  

  • JCYM is a group of women committed to improving their community through simple kind gestures.

  • I joined JCYM to have an opportunity to volunteer for a number of charities.  Along with that came some wonderful new friendships that I now cherish. 

 

If you would you like to learn more about JCYM, we would love to have you join us at a meeting!
