By focusing on all Four Areas of Opportunity together, we create a more well-rounded leader who can effectively navigate a globalized world and create sustainable change on a local, national and international scale.

It’s not a charity

but it does provide members with the opportunity and tools to make meaningful changes to the world around them through long-term projects that boost economic and societal growth.

It’s not a school for professional trainers

but it does enable members to make enormous personal and professional developments.

It’s not a social club or business networking organization

but being a member of JCI opens the door to countless opportunities for friendships and partnerships across hundreds of industries.
