Developing Leaders for A Changing World


Who We Are

JCI is a place to develop your leadership skills, meet inspiring people and make an impact in our local kiwi communities....

JCI New Zealand was founded 14th April 1932 and is a membership-based non-profit organisation for young active citizens aged 18-40 years.

We are a part of Junior Chamber International (JCI) - a global network of young active citizens who are developing themselves and creating positive change in communities around the world.

In more than 5000 communities across nearly 120 countries, our members are recognised for embracing new ideas, collaboration and diversity.

We demonstrate passion and courage to address the most critical challenges of our time. We empower young people by developing their skills, knowledge and understanding enabling them to stand up, make informed decisions and lead their community to take concrete action for sustainable impact.
