Networking

Junior Chamber International (JCI)'s Mission is to provide development opportunities that empower young people to create positive change.

We are young active citizens all over the world. Living, communicating, taking action and creating impact in our communities. Are you a young active citizen? Do you want to make a difference in your community? Join us on this journey of local action for global impact.

International Networking

Forge international links and make friends with people from other countries and cultures, you will help create a better understanding about the challenges that face us all today.

Junior Chamber International is a membership-based non-profit organization of 200,000 young people ages 18 to 40 in 5,000 communities and more than 100 countries around the world.

As a JCI member, you have the opportunity to attend several JCI conferences throughout the year. The two biggest are the Asia Pacific Conference and World Congress. JCI Singapore sends a delegation to both. If you go along, you will:

  • See the big picture of JCI and learn how it works
  • Bond with the people you’re traveling with
  • Expand your network as you meet many international JCI members
  • Make friends with open-minded, supportive people who will encourage you to reach your goals
  • Have an enormous amount of fun

Conferences offer high-quality training, lectures and keynote speeches (often on topics such as leadership, management and entrepreneurship).

They also lay on social events. During big conferences, different JCI countries host the evening parties. You could find yourself tasting sushi at the Japanese night, tucking into smørrebrød at the Danish party and slaking your thirst with sangria at the Catalonian evening.

JCI members find that conferences are a fantastic investment. You’ll come back feeling energized, inspired, and with a bulging contacts book.

Community Projects

Community spirit in JCI doesn’t stop at a local level; many national and international projects take place each year. JCI is an official partner of the United Nations and supports the UN Millennium Development Goals.

JCI Singapore's various chapters conduct community Impact projects throughout the year, addressing various concerns in Singapore as well as globally.

Some causes we currently support are:

  • Under-privileged schooling children
  • Terminally ill children
  • Elderly living alone without family support

If you wish to contribute in volunteering in our community outreach programs do not hesitate to sign up now!

Other than community projects, we are also actively contributing to formulating community policies. By engaging various government bodies, civil community like other NGOs, NPOs and Social Enterprises, we help to contribute towards sustainable solutions to address challenges in our community.

Training Opportunities

Training or Personal Development is central in JCI. Being able to create greater impact requires skills in public speaking, project management, fund raising, marketing and public relations, chairmanship, leadership and entrepreneurial thinking. JCI members commit to a lifetime of becoming better.

JCI has a wealth of training materials and accomplished trainers from all over the world to equip our members and leaders for greater impact.
