2012 JCI Plan of Action Preview
In a world plagued with so many challenges, there is a need now more than ever for a critical mass of young people to provide solutions to global challenges. In a highly interdependent world, it is the responsibility of JCI to engage young people to take the destiny of their communities, their countries and the world at large into their own hands. JCI provides young people with an opportunity to be active citizens, solution-providers through concrete action to create positive change. The ultimate outcome is a better world.

To achieve the vision “to be the leading global network of young active citizens,” JCI members in 115 countries have a shared mission, “to provide development opportunities that empower young people to create positive change.”

To further its mission, JCI inspires young people to identify problems and take action, creating impact. By creating impact from community to community, JCI builds a solid and visible network of young active citizens around the world. The strength of JCI lies in the collective impact of young active citizens taking individual action to create positive change.
