Join / Membership Information

There’s no denying that the Detroit Lakes Jaycees are a TON of fun. We’ve managed to create an atmosphere full of young professionals that all want to help the community.

Meetings are held the first Thursday of every month at 7 p.m. Board meetings, which are open to the membership, start at 6:30. We like food and we like to loosen up with libations (if you choose).

One of the largest tasks of the Detroit Lakes Jaycees is fundraising. Our Stag (guys only event) is held annually and is our largest fundraiser. All the money we collect throughout the year is used to fulfill various donation requests and support current members in furthering individual and group development. To request a donation, make a donation or find out more about where the fundraising money goes, visit the Donations page.

Besides the stag, we have various events throughout the year (social in nature) to attract new members and involve the general membership in volunteering. To find out more about the specific projects we assist with, please visit the Events section.

Please note the group does have a set age limit of 18-40 year olds. If you want to join and become awesome, here’s what we need from you:

  • Come to a meeting - Check the events page for meeting date and location.
  • Fill out a membership form - one can be found here.
  • Pay your first year’s dues. The Detroit Lakes Jaycees will pay for half of your first year’s dues (full amount of dues is $80 annually). If you’d like us to contact your employer to invoice them for your membership, we will do so (and most do).
  • After your payment has been made and your application has been submitted, you’ll be sworn in as a member. It’s painless and only takes a minute!

You’ll meet new people, build new relationships and help the community through our volunteering efforts. You’ll expand your knowledge of the community and meet people you may not have met otherwise. All you can do is grow here. You’re never alone in this group. We’re committed to helping each other succeed and work in groups for everything.
