Why we do it?

JCI gives members a versatile, truly valuable experience. It’s not a charity, but it does provide members with the opportunity and tools to make amazing changes to the society around them. It’s not a training organization, but it does enable members to make enormous personal and professional developments. It’s not a social club or business networking organization, but the networking and outreach opportunities are plenty. Guided by the passion to lead the world in a new direction, JCI members are ordinary individuals who do extraordinary things. We are individuals who see challenges not as obstacles, but as opportunities, and then we work together to make sure those opportunities are realized. We work as one united team to create real impacts—amplifying our global voice in order to be the organization that unites all sectors of society to create new, global opportunities.
