Our Story

Since its inception in 1963, JCI Shakopee has provided adults aged 18-40 a vehicle to help solve problems locally and around the world. We believe we can – and should – address the needs of others through civic engagement. Our membership can be found in all walks of life (and all over the state,) each sharing a passion for making a difference, an interest in being part of something bigger than themselves, and a desire to grow and expand their horizons by being active in their community.

Our Creed

Meet the Team

Each year JCI Shakopee members elect the chapter's Board of Directors. The JCI structure offers leadership opportunities to new members each year.
