What Is JCI?

Our Mission

It is our mission to provide development opportunities that empower young people to create positive change

Established in 1915, we are a global network of more than 200,000 active members and over one million alumni.

We are a group of young leaders, aged 18-40, who have a shared goal to create lasting positive change in our communities.

We all have a responsibility to improve the world around us, and as JCI members we proactively search for areas where help is needed.

We then take the initiative to form creative solutions, combining the expertise of local members with help from local and national partners.

How Does JCI Work?

Core Elements of JCI

Building Lasting Relationships

Meeting like-minded people who have a passion for improvement is at the heart of everything we do – it is what makes JCI so effective in changing the world.

Our regular social and networking events will help you make friends for life and establish meaningful, long lasting professional networks.

Self Development

Through local, national and international leadership roles, you’ll widen your business skill set and gain valuable experience which would be otherwise unavailable to young professionals.

You’ll  be offered opportunities to travel internationally and take advantage of regular professional workshops to ensure you’re always improving, gaining new experience, and having new adventures.

Active Citizenship

Improving our local communities and wider society underpins everything we do.

We create innovative and sustainable solutions to challenges faced by communities at home and around the world.

Our initiatives and fundraisers raise awareness and provide much needed relief for those in need.



Over the last 102 years, JCI has transformed the lives of millions of members and non-members alike.
