JCI is about MAKING A CHANGE! We inspire young people to recognize their responsibility to create a better world and empower them to drive change.
JCI Hopkins (formerly the Hopkins Jaycees) has been creating positive change since 1950. We have supported the Hopkins community through numerous projects including Cops & Kids shopping, Little Free Libraries, Hopkins Students College Scholarships, and partnerships with other local nonprofits.
Our membership provides adults aged 18-40 a means to solve problems locally and around the world. We each share a passion for making a difference, a drive to be a part of something bigger than ourselves, and a desire for personal growth.
Our members join for a variety of reasons. Some to be more involved with community service. Others to attend the free leadership and personal development trainings. And some just wanted to get to know cool people at our socials. Whatever your reason, we have a spot for you! Join us!
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.

Our immediate past president assists our current president however needed.
Our business VP is in charge of our fundraisers such as Raspberry Festival street dances and Mainstreet Day, as well as coming up with new ideas to raise funds.
Our community VP helps build and maintain relationships with other local organizations and finds new ways to make an impact in our community.
Our IDVP provides ways for members to grow as individuals and leaders, and plans social events in which members can become more engaged with one another.
