The JAYCEE Creed

We Believe: 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 and women through free enterprise; That government should be of laws rather than of men and women; That earth's great treasure lies in human personality; And that service to humanity is the best work of life.
