Junior Chamber International (JCI) is a worldwide community of young active citizens who share the belief that in order to create positive change, they must take collective action to improve themselves and the world around them.
JCI Guyana is an arm of this body and directly affiliated to the JCI West Indies and JCIs worldwide.
It works towards leadership development and providing opportunities for the development of skills that will benefit both personal and professional lives.
It does so by providing opportunities for young people to develop their leadership and entrepreneurial skills, social responsibility and fellowship necessary to create positive change through its many training opportunities such as those conducted recently.
Their theme for this administrative year is “Be Better –Empowering Young Minds”.
The organisation encourages persons with a desire for such to become involved, especially with the wide range of upcoming events in Tunisia, St. Kitts, Trinidad & Tobago, Barbados, Curacao, and Suriname.
According to officials, the involvement of locals provides opportunities for community service, networking and life-long friendships.
