How to Become a JCI Member

Interested in JCI? I am sure you have asked yourself  this question. “How do I Join?” 

To become part of our global movement, individuals join a JCI Local Organization within a city district, town or village.

Our members are located in 5,000 communities in more than 100 countries around the world. They come from a wide range of backgrounds, cultures, languages and professions. But what unites them is a desire to create lasting positive change in their communities.

As JCI members seek targeted action for the problems they see in their communities, the collective impact of these many individuals across the globe leaves a lasting impression on our world.

The JCI Mission

To provide development opportunities that empower young people to create positive change.

The JCI Vision

To be the leading global network of young active citizens.

The JCI Values

That faith in God gives meaning and purpose to human life
That the brotherhood of man transcends the sovereignty of nations
That economic justice can best be won by free men through free enterprise
That government should be of laws rather than of men
That earth’s great treasure lies in human personality
And that service to humanity is the best work of life.

Our Philosophy
Making a World of Difference

There is a limit to what governments are able to achieve in society. As responsible citizens in a globalized world, JCI members take on the challenges around them through local development initiatives. These tailored projects require members to use strategic planning and critical planning to craft creative solutions to the problems of their communities.

Be Better

JCI members seek ways to live out our slogan, Be Better. We think critically about society’s greatest challenges and act on behalf of our communities to be part of the solution. We seek better solutions to build better communities, creating a better future.

The Original Active Citizens

As global citizens, we all have rights and responsibilities, as well as shared goals. Through active citizenship, we enact our sense of social responsibility to work towards these goals and benefit communities worldwide.

Our Founder, Henry Giessenbier, was the original active citizen. He took steps to engage young people in civic involvement in 1914, and JCI members worldwide have followed his lead ever since.

A Grassroots Movement with International Scope

In JCI, the action is local, but our principles and impact are global. Members understand that in a globalized world, their local actions echo across the globe. 5,000 JCI Local Organizations addressing problems in their communities are united in a global movement creating global impact.

One Year to Lead

With this principle at its core, the JCI structure offers leadership opportunities to new members each year. One year to shine. One year of impact. One year to lead.
