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.
