Mission

Taking action & providing sustainable solutions.

JCI is a nonprofit organization of young active citizens age 18 to 40 who are engaged and committed to creating impact in their communities. Active citizens are individuals invested in the future of our world. JCI gathers active citizens from all sectors of society. We develop the skills, knowledge and understanding to make informed decisions and take action.

Everyday in over 100 countries.

As globally minded young people, we all have rights, responsibilities and share goals. We find targeted solutions to local issues benefitting our communities, our world and our future. Embracing new ideas, collaboration and diversity, we have the passion and courage to address the critical challenges of our time.

How is JCI different from other nonprofits?

JCI members take initiative to solve local challenges. More than a one-time donation or service opportunity, we focus on sustainable impact locally and globally. It only takes one active citizen to change the world. Be that active citizen today.

Being an active citizen means to take initiative to better myself, empower those around me and equip ourselves with the tools to create positive change in the community and in the world.

Active citizenship is inspiring people to recognize their collective responsibility for the state of their communities and being conscious of their rights.

JCI has empowered me to add more value to my community, while leading and serving by example. At the same time I have been given the opportunity to share my story of impact with others.
