The Jaycees works to improve the skills of its members through its diverse Training Program. In addition to sponsoring a local organization training school each year, the Michigan Jaycees provides a series of trainings at each of three conferences held each year, in addition to a series of webinars held on a regular basis. Past and present members of the state Board of Directors are often asked to come and train on a variety of topics at local chapter functions as well. In addition, Junior Chamber International hosts a comprehensive training program on the skills and tools necessary to be an effective trainer, from content creation to speaking skills to handout creation, etc.
In 2012, the Michigan Jaycees partnered with WorldLink Communications, LLC, to bring WorldLink’s’ training certification program in three key areas to the Michigan Jaycees. Upon completion of the required training modules and a capstone project, participants can actually become certified at the green-belt or black-belt level in the areas of communication, leadership, and conflict resolution.
