By Graham & Susan Butterworth

In its heyday from the 1940s to the 1980s, New Zealand Jaycee was one of the liveliest service organisations in the country. Its members were indeed both `developers of people' and `builders of communities'. The organisation's impressive contribution to the social infrastructure of New Zealand after World War II is well known. Every community had amenities built or aided by the Jaycees. Its role in training leaders in politics, local government and business is less well known but many an MP and mayor learned public speaking and meeting procedure in a Jaycee chapter.

This book makes an important contribution to New Zealand history and the international study of service organisations. Hitherto the major service clubs have been below historians' radar, taken for granted until they began to decline. Jaycee is a candid study of the forces that first encouraged and then weakened the voluntary sector. At the beginning of the 21st century New Zealand needs to know how to revive the vibrant community engagement that was one of our greatest assets.
