The RISING PHOENIX JAYCEES began in 1979 but did not become full fledged members until 1984 when the U.S. Jaycees allowed women to become full members.
During our first year as Jaycees, we grew from 30 members to 69 members and placed No. 4 in the Parade of Chapters proving to ourselves and Hawaii that we could continue our history of excellence as Jaycees. Since that time, we have been always been one of the TOP 5 Chapters in the State of Hawaii (Finished #3 in 2010).
Our success is directly proportional to the quality and caring of our officers, directors and members as well as our programs and projects. These projects have included Meals on Wheels, Clean-A-Park, Adopt-A-Home, in which the chapter adopted the Maunalani Center and visit throughout the year, running of the Rubber Duckie Race for Cerebral Palsy patients.
Besides these and other community fundraising projects, our chapter has a strong sports program of volleyball, softball, darts, as well as individual development programs such as public speaking workshops and chapter socials.
