For The Signal
The Santa Clarita Valley chapter of Junior Chamber International, commonly known as the Jaycees, is hosting a full day of events for young professionals Saturday, Nov. 16.
The Jaycees are scheduled to host the first Meet the Jaycees Open Day to allow professionals under 40 to get to know the Jaycees, and find out about what they do.
Breakfast will be followed by JCI’s impact training, which, according to Neil Fitzgerald, the executive vice president of JCI in Santa Clarita, is a globally recommended and recognized training that focuses on root causes and long-term solutions. The three-hour training is expected to center around creating sustainable projects that will have real impact and positive change.
“It’s a time where those who don’t know anybody can meet like-minded people and get some training,” Fitzgerald said.
The event is scheduled to include breakfast donated by the Holiday Inn Express from 9:30 to 11 a.m. This will be a chance for those who are interested to make connections with other young professionals and to find out how they can get involved with the community.
This event is scheduled Saturday, Nov. 16, beginning at 9:30 a.m. at Holiday Inn Express, Valencia, 27513 Wayne Mills Place. Breakfast is free for all. Impact training is free for members and $15 for non-members.
