With over 120 members, the Brainerd Jaycees are one of the top chapters in the state of Minnesota. We have a strong tradition of excellence in Brainerd developing leaders and supporting our community. Each year the Brainerd Jaycees donate over $250,000 to local charities and donate over 75,000 people hours to our community.

The Brainerd Jaycees were established in February 1937 and since that time numerous local, district, regional and state leaders have called Brainerd their home chapter.
