Empowering Edmonton’s Young Leaders to Be Better
At JCI, we connect and develop the future leaders of the world. Leaders who are driven by continuous improvement, pursuing both personal and professional development. Leaders who believe in the importance of giving back, by identifying needs in their community and undertaking projects to create the positive changes they want to see. Leaders who want to share their successes and learn from other young, active citizens by hosting conferences in interesting locations all around the world.
We do this by providing development opportunities through courses, seminars and sessions directly aimed at personal and professional development. This can culminate with practical experience gained in leadership positions within the organization - from leading a committee in charge of a project, to sitting on the Board of Directors, to potentially becoming the President!
The end goal of developing our members is to empower them to help create positive change in their local communities. Members will learn about the Active Citizen Framework, which aims to help them identify local challenges, develop ideas on where they can help, formulate a plan, and take action on their projects resulting in sustainable positive impact.
