The Dahlonega-Lumpkin County Jaycees is a volunteer organization comprised of dedicated men and women between the ages of 18 and 40 who live and/or work in Lumpkin County. With a strong focus on servant leadership, the Dahlonega Jaycees strive to uphold the values stated in the Jaycee Creed and to develop leaders of integrity and high moral character.  Our goal is to make a positive impact in the Dahlonega-Lumpkin County area through: various outreach and philanthropy projects, small business support, the preservation of local history and the promotion of Dahlonega tourism.


The Jaycees 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 through free enterprise;
That government should be of laws rather than of men;
That earth’s great treasure lies in human personality;
And that service to humanity is the best work of life!
