JAYP connects, empowers, and engages young professionals between ages 21 and 40 in the greater Joliet area.
The Joliet Area Young Professionals (JAYP) is a division of the Joliet Region Chamber of Commerce and Industry. It was developed to establish social and professional development opportunities for young professionals. Our vision is to cultivate a new generation of young professionals that take an active role in serving and empowering the Joliet community socially and professionally while being civically-engaged. JAYP also strives to enhance the vitality of the Joliet Region by creating a strong community of young professionals.
