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.
To provide development opportunities that empower young Edmontonians to create positive change.
To be the leading local network of young active citizens of Edmonton.
JCI is involved in a score of projects in every community we’re in across the world. Local chapters have access to superb leadership development material, public relations programs designed to help cut community problems, community action material, and more. There are almost a hundred different publications available. Besides, JCI chapters operate scores of projects on their own – devised and carried out by local JCI members.
JCI members are guided by the JCI Active Citizen Framework, which provides a methodology for conducting impactful projects that provide sustainable solutions to communities around the world.

WHAT DOES JCI OFFER?
The desire to Be Better.
To learn to accept responsibility, to make decisions, become effective speakers, develop management techniques, to be better employers, employees, and a better person. There are successful leaders and business people across Canada and the globe who attribute their achievements to the start they were given in JCI. We didn’t do it for them, but gave them the development opportunity to do it themselves. Isn’t that what you want?
The desire for community involvement.
To have a hand in identifying community ills and planning and executing action projects to help.
The desire for fellowship.To meet and associate with progressive young people of the same age and bracket with similar interests and objectives. The friendships are not confined to your home town – we’re a national and international organization.
