History

The Richmond chapter is the oldest chapter in the Capital Region and the Second oldest chapter in the State.  It has been serving the Richmond metro area since May of 1936.

Throughout the years the Richmond chapter has had many accomplishments and made many improvements in the local community.  The chapter is responsible for founding Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Richmond, helping to bring the Special Olympics to the Commonwealth of Virginia, founding the Richmond Christmas Parade, expanding and helping to manage Project WARM (with Tuckahoe of course), and has also started a Beach Music Festival, built some parks and playgrounds, s well as conducting many other projects.

Like all Jaycees chapters, Richmond is focused on providing leadership training with a focus on community development.  We are always looking for new and exciting project and training ideas!
