JCI

What is JCI?
JCI is an international voluntary organisation that provides opportunities for individuals in their 20s and 30s who are keen to develop their business and personal effectiveness skills, including personal leadership, public speaking, community and political skills, while meeting like minded people in a social environment.
 
Meet People. Develop Skills. Have Fun!
What connects us is an interest in learning new skills, increasing our effectiveness (as employees, team leaders or entrepreneurs) and our belief that we should also volunteer our time to support the communities in which we live and work.
We also like to network, socialise, play sports and then retire to a local bar!
 
Reap the Benefits
Joining JCI opens up an unrivalled range of training and networking opportunities. Every month, members learn from professional trainers, attend workshops, social and networking events. JCI local events are free to attend for members or cover a nominal fee depending on the country, chapter and event. We also negotiate member discounts with partners, sponsors and patrons.
 
We're International
Junior Chamber International (JCI) is a global network. Members have the chance to participate in JCI training events and conferences around the world from Tunisia to Quebec, Hawaii to Monte Carlo, Tallin to Hong Kong, Moscow to Dehli.
JCI runs its own training institute developing young people into international trainers.
There is a PR and Media Academy, A European and Asian Local Leaders conference, A debating academy, The Know How Transfer programme shadowing European Parliamentarians in Brussels, The JCI/ICC/United Nations Conference held to discuss how JCI and ICC can support UN in their millennium goals and with Global Compact.  At these events members have the chance to meet with world leaders in politics, business and training.
JCI is funded through membership fees, profits from events, donations from past members and sponsorship from governments and companies. Each town has one or more chapters run by the members as elected officers from a diverse range of backgrounds and careers. 
Past members that learnt their political skills at JCI are JF Kennedy and Bill Clinton while Kofi Annan took that further to use the skills of diplomacy and negotiation with his passion for serving the global community and humanitarian causes as he had in JCI.

Testimonial

“I joined JCI Edinburgh when I was 25 for fun and networking. Before I knew it, I was part of an international project team creating an educational exchange between school kids in Belgium and Scotland. I then went on to get involved in many other activities, big and small, such as being a city guide for one of the tall ships for a weekend and helping organise a world conference in Glasgow.
 
The amount of camaraderie and fun was infectious and the skills I developed proved to be invaluable moving forward in my career. Every time I gave a little of my time, I was rewarded in experiences, memories and contacts 10 times over.
 
JCI gave me the chance to meet many distinguished Scottish personalities from Jack McConnell MSP, Fiona Hislop MSP, Nina Gill EMP to Sir Tom Farmer, Norman Drummond, Duncan Ballantyne, and international ones such as Kenneth Blanchett and Antony Robbins.
 
I have also had the opportunity to serve as a local and national president and have many amazing memories of my experience locally and globally, which has taught me so much over the years.
 
I personally believe, JCI can be an essential part of any young person who wishes to develop themselves as a rounded and a successful individual. JCI has been my experiential MBA of Life.”
